Product Overview

This new addition to the Images of America series
traces the history of Lockport, Illinois, from the
height of its canal activity in the late 1860s to its
decline as the lifeblood of the town in the early
20th century. Lockport''s story is revealed here in
over 200 vintage photographs that trace the town''s
progress from its early days through the 1970s, when
the canal reappeared as a recreational and tourist attraction. In Lockport, Illinois: The Old Canal Town, author John Lamb offers a rare glimpse into the lives of Lockport''s founding fathers, as well as an in-depth look at the Demings family, whose fortunes and livelihoods depict the economic and cultural trends followed by many of Lockport''s families. Lamb narrates this collection with an insightful text, providing many little-known facts about the town, the people, and the events that have shaped the history of this fascinating canal town.
