Canal at Mahoning Street looking north 1898

Locust Alley is to the right of the canal. Filbert Street now runs in the approximate location of Locust Alley. There is a rope running from the boat to mules on the right towpath, in the shadow of a tree in front of the two-story house. Across the canal on the west side is S. J. Shimer & Sons two-story brick machine shop, with a high board fence surrounding their manufacturing complex.
