Lock 2 Raceway

5"X7" Oil on panel SOLD

The Welland Canal is endlessly fascinating. The current canal is the fourth and was completed in 1932. The first canal, completed in 1829, was much longer and more meandering, it joined Twelve Mile Creek and the Welland River with a flight of 40 locks which were all constructed from wood. The climb from Lake Ontario to Lake Erie is about 100 metres.
I have painted this same view before here and here.
