Canal Trivia

This ordinary canal-side photo around Camden Lock shows a feature that can be seen in many places on canals, a square cut segment in the path for no apparent reason. Except that the reason is a little more obscure. It is a slope, which used to be used to get the horses out that fell in accidentally, in this busy area.

Thought you might enjoy that, anyway.

I've learnt something new, thanks. I suppose that was a real occupational hazard at the time. :(

I learned something new, as well. It's a very nice shot, too.
