This is a drawing from this past summer of the Erie Canal in Lockport, NY and it's going to be published in "Strokes of Genius 10" by North Light Books in 2018.

The bridge in this scene is called "Big Bridge" because it's  330 feet wide and one of the widest bridges in the world, at least according to the plaque that I found on the corner of Main and Church streets. The church in the background is St Mary's.

 I've included a Google map below to give you a better idea of how wide the bridge is. The lock is at the top right of this preview, and that was the vantage point of this drawing.
