Williamsport, drained canal ( more details)


Click on the MEDIA ITEMS below for more information

   



It is probable that this image of the drained canal at Williamsport was taken after the wall of the aqueduct over the Conococheague failed in 1920. There are a large number of people walking along the tow path, possibly on their way to see the destruction. The photograph was taken before the rail lift bridge over the canal was built in 1923.
