Canal Lock Wall

5515 scanAn interesting pattern in the stone walls of a canal lock at Roscoe Village living history site in Coshocton, Ohio. Tooling marks in the upper right block can easily be seen. The Ohio and Erie Canal was constructed in the 1820's, and connected Lake Erie with the Ohio River. The photo was taken in June of 2007 with a Nikon FTn Photomic 35 mm SLR equipped with a 50 mm f/1.4 Nikkor-S.C. Auto lens on expired Kodak Plus-X Pan film. The negative was enlarged optically with a Beseler 23CIIXL enlarger and a 50 mm f/2.8 Rodenstock Rodagon lens on Ilford Multigrade Classic FB Double Weight Fiber Base silver gelatin photo paper. Processing was done archivally using Kodak chemistry, with a final toning with Kodak Rapid Selenium Toner, treated with hypo clearing agent, and washed in an archival washer.
