New York Erie Canal Tour by Michael Karpovage

New York Erie Canal Tour
Title: New York Erie Canal Tour
Starting Point: Brockport, New York
Artist: Michael Karpovage
From: Finger Lakes Region of New York
Favorite Place: Savannah, GA
Footnote: An American treasure, the Erie Canal was opened in 1825 and soon became the nation's first superhighway allowing settlers access to rich and plentiful land resources. This illustrated stretch – from Brockport to Rochester, NY – depicts the Canal and surrounding countryside as it is in the present day. Every crossing has been carefully portrayed, right down to navigational lights underneath the bridges. And if you look really hard there's even apples on the trees!
