    They are interesting and poignant as you say. All that work ... to bring stuff to places where they don't do that work anymore.

    A few years ago we saw the remains of the Black River Canal in upstate NY. It was abandoned in 1925 ... it doesn't have water in it anymore in places. Cool though.

    They cast a spell, no doubt.
