Erie Canal Bicentennial Maps and Photos, 1817-2017
In celebration of the Erie Canal Bicentennial, The New York State Archives Partnership Trust is proud to partner with Gallery5one in offering high quality reprints of select maps and photos from the NYS Archives. Proposed in 1808 and completed in 1825, New York's canal system links the waters of Lake Erie in the west to the Hudson River in the east. An engineering marvel when it was built, some called it the Eighth Wonder of the World.
