Previously Unpublished: Illinois and Michigan Canal Lock's 14 and 15, LaSalle, Illinois, 2006

This new, short series are of previously unpublished photo's taken by the blog author before the blog was originally created in 2008. The author visited most of these locations in 2006. Some of the trips were not completed and had to be cut short. The author has yet to return to complete visiting some of the locations.

Lock's 15 and 15 are all that is left of the lock system used by barges that traveled the Illinois nad Michigan, or I&M, Canal. Many of the barges were towed by mule along a tow path with young, teenage boy controlling the mule teams. The I&M Canal was no longer useful once the railroad built the first set of tracks along and adjacent to the canal. Today it is an important historical site for LaSalle,Illinois.
