Description (ca. 1921):

Major water way completed in October 26, 1825. The canal has 82 locks and spans across Albany through Buffalo. At this point the canal was almost 100 years old and starting to show it. In 1918, part of the canal was widened to become part of the New York State Barge Canal, which extended into the Hudson river.
