Delaware Canal Photos

An album of photos of the entire Delaware Canal from

Easton, PA to Bristol, PA

Enjoy a photographic tour of Pennsylvania's Delaware Division Canal! On this site are photos that the webmaster has taken in recent years of the Delaware Canal. The photos cover the entire 60-mile canal from Easton to Bristol. The dates after each photo is when the Webmaster took them. Each section has 3-6 photos in it.

Look at the bottom of each page. Scrolling information is there.

The Delaware Canal was built to bring coal to Philadelphia-Area markets. Construction began in 1827. It ceased operating in 1931. The Canal became a State Park in 1940.

Hold your mouse on the photo (a few seconds might be needed) to see an alternate photo of Bristol Lagoon. When you take your mouse off the photo, the main photo returns. Alternate photo taken by the Webmaster, 10/25/03. The alternate photo may be changed periodically.
