Photographer: Tom Fuchs
Taken: November 4, 2006
Caption: C&O Canal Locktender's House at Lock 6
Additional Description: This is the view from the parking lot. The canal and lock are behind the trees to the left. The stone-lined bypass flume that passes hard by the house on the right can be seen in the foreground. Dirt path on right leads to a footbridge across the flume. A plank over the flume (foreground) makes for a shorter, if more precarious, route to the house. A sharp eye will notice the 21st century heat pump compressor next to the basement door of this 19th century house.
