Lock 15

Lock 15

This is a side view of Lock 15 Illinois Michigan Canal.  This the last western lock.  Distal to this lock is the steam boat basin.  This is where the Illinois River steam boats docked. Cargo  was transferred between the canal boats and the river boats.   Seen on this view are the limestone of the Lock walls.  There are no gates present.    In the back ground are the limestone piers of the Bulington Railroad Bridge.
