The unidentified author of this journal has created a fascinating study and detailed assessment of Canals in the north-eastern USA. We believe the writer is based in or near Coalport Pennsylvania as most of the charts and schedules relate to Coalport as the starting point. It is a pocket sized multi-ring notebook with 101 numbered pages and three extended pull out maps, an index and some printed articles about canals are glued in. It has drawings of canal boats. Important details are neatly underlined in red ink. The author spent a huge amount of time and attention into the details. It measures 3.25" by 5.5". The notebook cover is in very rough shape, there are a few pages that are no longer attached but all appear present and very legible. There is some age-toning evident. Lehigh, Delaware, Barge, Cape Cod, Panama, Morris are some of the canals mentioned. Some of the subjects are boat-canal dimensions, coal rates, tolls, aqueducts, distances between places, dams on the Lehigh, Tides +++.
