Rideau Canal : Shadow chain

Chains make the locks function. The locks may link the waterways but these links make it all possible. Did youse know that the Rideau Canal is all original - stone, wood and steel? Think about that for a moment. The canal was built 175 years ago. In that time it has never been upgraded or modified - merely mantained. It is a monument to building things right the first time around.
