Members of the Taylor Family, who lived at the lockhouse at lock 49 for four generations, with friends. The warehouse in the background sat across the flume of lock 49 and was operated by the Jacques family, then the Prathers until the early 20th century. The small shack next to it was a waiting shanty that canal boatmen could wait in while their boat locked through.
