700-1825 map

This famous map of the Erie Canal is dated from the year the canal was finished.  It has a feature that we don’t find on any highway maps today.  Look carefully at the jagged line crossing near the top.  It’s called a “profile”, and is there to show the rise and fall of the water level as it passes through the dozens of locks needed to negotiate the undulating terrain across the state.  Today cars climb those hills effortlessly.  In 1825 though, creating a level waterway that actually climbed those hills was rightly called an engineering miracle.
