|This is a view taken from the upper lock. We can see boats entering the turning basin from the top of the lower flight of three locks which brought them up from the level of the lower Cataraqui River. They will then proceed to the upper lock where they will be lifted to the level of Colonel By Lake.
Also visible in the photo is the lockmaster's house, now the Lockmaster Anglin Visitor Centre, named after Lockmaster Robert Anglin. Sitting above the lower locks is a railway bridge for the main Montreal to Toronto railway line. Between the Lockstation Office and the Lockmaster's House is a lay-by, formerly used as a dry-dock for vessels in the winter.
High above it all is the blockhouse, one of only four built along the Rideau, still standing guard to this day.
