The Champlain Canal at Mechanicville, NY
Looking at this postcard, it isn't very difficult to imagine my grandparents navigating the Champlain Canal with their family on board. At this spot, heading south, their trip would almost be over and soon they could rest in Waterford. Benjamin and Edith Mylott may have been as far north as Montréal or Sorel or perhaps only up to Whitehall. Whatever the distance, it must have felt good to be back on land and with family in Waterford at the end of the long trip.
