The Travels of Tug 44

Oswego Canal Lock O-5
Minetto, NY

Canal Corp Tug Syracuse pauses at the lock wall, waiting for the gates to open. The Syracuse is pushing a load of two heavy barges.

In this northbound view, the lock keeper is spilling the lock. To the left is the adjacent dam and waterfall.
