Caption

Canal Lock Second To Panama - The Canal is about eight miles long from Puget Sound to Lake Washington. It adds more than ninety miles to Seattle's water frontage and gives access for ocean shipping to the non-tidal fresh water harbors of Lake Union, in the heart of the City, and Lake Washington, twenty-five miles long and four wide, on the east boundary of Seattle. The right-of-way is 300 feet wide, the channel 100 feet wide, and the depth 36 feet. The locks are capable of lifting larger vessels than any government locks outside the Panama Canal.
