Lock 1, C&O Canal, Washington D.C.

Lock 1 C&O Canal GeorgetownThis  is  the  ruins  of  Lock  One  of  the  Chesapeake  and  Ohio  Canal  in  Washington  D.C.  This  was  the  first  of  many  canal  lock  what  would  have  been  a  waterway  between  the  Chesapeake  Bay  and  the  Ohio  River  in  Pittsburgh,  Pennsylvania.  Sadly,  the  canal  only  got  as  far  as  Cumberland,  Maryland  before  it  was  completely  abandoned.
