If any of you share my fascination with early woodyboat commerce...there is the coolest film/vid series on youtube:
This is a series of 4 short films made by THOMAS EDISON & co. in 1917. They follow a boat towed down the C and O Canal from the mountains to Washington DC.
This footage is almost a century old and captivating....wish we had such vids of Chris Smith and Co etc etc. You can see how the locks worked, and the canal boats and everything!
Go to youtube and enter: C and O Canal 1917 to view.
