A Fiddling Canal Boatman 

Posted 10/2/2008 9:15:03 PM

From the book 'Images Of America: Lambertville And New Hope'. Lambertville and New Hope are sister towns on opposite shores of the Delaware River. Canals parallel the river on both shores. The canals once teemed with freight and passenger vessels. There was much interchange with railroads and trolleys. Lambertville had a large man-made 'harbor' where canal boats could dock overnight. (now it's a pond in a park, full of ducks and geese rather than boats and barges) Lambertville also had a shop where Pennsylvania Railroad locomotives were built. The superintendent of that shop, J.A. Andersen, also photographed, documenting the people, events and landscapes of the area.

That really cool , thanks .. everytime I drive by or visit the canal I wonder about the Irishmen who died digging that canal by hand ...and how many of them were musicians...
