The Cumberland Valley Railroad had a transfer point at Powell's Bend on the Canal. There was a location on the West Virginia side of the Potomac called Powell's Bend, and this canal location across the river used the same name. This photograph was taken looking west around 1910. It shows the Canal and the wharf, and the bridge of Cumberland Valley Railroad on the line from Hagerstown to Martinsburg.

The PDF shows the location of the wharf in relation to the Cushwa Warehouse, and coal shipments on the C&O.
