"Now and Then" on the Erie Canalway

Fort Stanwix National Park in NY asked us to create a "then and now" mural about the Erie Canalway, which was created 240 years ago.  We made a mural in two panels---an old and new---with the canal running through both to give continuity.  The "old" panel shows the original lock structure, as well as the original canal boats that were originally used to haul freight, and the horses and mules that were used to pull them.  The "new" panels shows how the old mule path is used for biking, walking and recreation, and the canal is used for all sorts of water recreation.  We also showed one of the many bridges that cross the canal, as well as a popular gazebo, and also Fort Stanwix.
