This is a very old Image of Port Clinton Ave. that was taken sometime in the early 1900’s. It shows the old Union Canal while it was still in operation. Most of this is all gone to History, but there is still some of it that remains today.
I have taken the time to “outline” in colors what is still visible today. In the Black is Port Clinton Ave. It still follows the same as it did back then. The Brown is the old Union Canal Towpath that is now a walking trail. The Brown square around a building is now a private residence, but still exists. The 2 Blue Dot’s are where Historic Plaques are located along side the road to show what used to be here. The Lock #30 is gone, as well as the 2 large Barges that sit in the Canal.
All of the other buildings shown here are long gone. The Canal is quite over grown, which I have shown Image’s of in previous Posts. What I’ll try to do later on is go up and see if I can find the hill that this Image was taken from. Then compare.
One thought on “OLD PORT CLINTON AVE.”
Old photos are great. Do you ever wish you’d taken more photos of places before they changed or ceased to exist
