My goodness. In a short span of years, look how engineering changed the landscape of this small area. A bridge, a railroad and a shipping canal.

Concrete from this upper canal lock gate is still evident and the upper end of the canal is now used for boat launching..
All piers of the 3248' bridge were poured on dry rock at low water. The 250' bridge swing span over the canal between piers 1 and 2 still exists just south of the present 1950's lift span.

Anyone know anything about the house in the picture?

I am wondering if that house might have been the home of a lock tender. Someone had to open and close those locks. I don't recall seeing that house though.
Definitely a photo shot when the water was low..
