Every year there is a bicycle tour from Buffalo to Albany along the Old Erie Canal. Cyclists are put up in tents, feed mess hall style and their luggage moved ahead for them.  Last nights stop was in Syracuse and tonight in Rome, where the first shovel for the canal was dug 200 years ago.

 

Along the way they stopped at the Chittenango Landing Canal Boat Museum.  This is the site of a boatyard that built and repaired canal barges.  They have excavated three dry docks, and evidence of several buildings.  A lot of reconstruction has been done making it one of the best museums along and about the canal.  Worth a visit if you are in the area.  A friend is the blacksmith and got me involved so I have a new "client" ( as I call my charities that I shoot for).

 

Pictures from today's visit.

Nice work. I particularly like the last one.


Thanks, Dennis.

In number 4 you can see the barge under the roof.  This is cutaway showing the interior for tours.  The sewing machine is in the living quarters of the barge.  The family would spend the barging season living on the barge.  The beds were rope beds that folded down.  Spare mules were carried in the front and changed out periodically.  This is a barge from the "second" version of the canal after it was expanded.  The first canal was much narrower.  In those days they swapped mules from way stations like stage coaches did.
