In case you think i’ve lost my way, I’m planning a 5d post on the ruins in the immediate vicinity of the Erie Canal, and then there’ll be one more zone I want to identify. After that, I’ll be out of those zones . . .
I am truly stunned by these magnificent photos of gorgeous structures built with rudimentary technology and lasting over a century and a half.

Lock 56 center island steps
Lock 60 Macedon looking eastward from the center island
Lock 59 Lockville Newark northwest chamber

All photos and captions come thanks to Bob Stopper, to whom I am indebted for being able to publish these. For more photos on this area of the canal, click here. For more historic photos but of the Barge Canal iteration of the waterway, click here.
Italy? the Levant? Upstate New York?
It is indeed. Once this aqueduct was state-of-the-art infrastructure that carried the Erie Canal and its traffic over the Seneca River.
It remains extraordinarily beautiful, as captured in these photos by Bob Stopper.
Half of the arches were removed during construction of the Barge Canal, which sought to expand the size and utility of the system by incorporating lakes and rivers like the Seneca.
These horizontal piers once held boards that made up the “canal” bed; sides of the canal were also planked, creating a trough through which canal waters flowed.
Beside the “trough,” this grassy path was trod by mules’ feet.
another at Schoharie Creek.
The last two photos are mine; all the Richmond aqueduct photos comes thanks to Bob Stopper.
Thanks to Allen Baker for these two golden hour photos of possibly the newest vessel to cleave sixth boro waters. Quantum of the Seas . . . as names goes, just another name. As a floating stately pleasure dome . . . it has the all the latest gadgetry, like a Makr Shakr bar, as demonstrated in a delightful video: turn the volume way up.
For more photos and lots of numbers, check out NY Mediaboat’s post here.
Again, many thanks to Allen for these photos. By next spring, it seems the vessel will be operating out of Asian waters.
All I know about these photos is that they were in frames in the Baldwinsville Lockmaster’s office. He didn’t know who took them or what year they were taken. Can anyone answer those questions or identify any of the people shown in the photos of Sheila Moran, Cheyenne, and the Great Lakes tugs (I think) called Pennsylvania and Maryland.
Many thanks to bowsprite for these photos; Pretty Lamb raises the bar for unusual names. Click here for more “pretty” fleet. Or here: http://tugster.wordpress.com/?s=pretty
Photos from Italy, Florida, and Trinidad, resp. The first photo comes thanks to Rod Clingman . . .tug Lourdes C towing Costa (not Concordia) Fasonosa. The second photo, thaks to Ashley Hutto, shows Florida Institute of Oceanography’s Weatherbird II–said to be first research vessel to reach Deepwater Horizon post-blowout. The photo and the rest from S/V Maraki and my sister in Port-of-Spain.
The 1823 culvert under the canal is a spectacle. Hope you enjoyed it from below and above here.
All photos by Will Van Dorp, who didn’t need a drone camera for these.
