The C & O Canal in 1909

Here’s a great shot of the Chesapeake & Ohio Canal in 1909.

View of four boats in the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal lined up to cross the Potomac Aqueduct Bridge. The boats are owned by the Canal Towage Co. (misspelled "Towace). The postcard's reverse is stamped "Sunday Magazine April 16, 1933."
