Following the Champlain Canal through New York State in postcards....scenes from Waterford to Whitehall.
The canal from Lake Champlain to Waterford was officially opened in 1823. When you read the chronology of events of the Champlain canal, it seems repairs, fixes, enlargements, improvements and plugs were started the day it opened and never stopped! The postcards below are not arranged in any chronological order. If theres any order it would be from south to north. Therefore in some images the canal looks narrow with a towpath. In other images the canal is wide or doubled spanned.
