Old Erie Canal images are all over the Internet, but one place that has collected quite a few into one website is this one:

http://www.eriecanal.org/images.html

Looking for people to post the "before & after" pictures for locations they can find along their own stretch of the Erie, find the early 1920s picture of your own spillways & culverts or embankments and then take the 2019 version and post to the ECNA.

That could be an interesting way to forward a list of "other places that need safety restoration" to the NY Canal Corporation. They could spend a little money continuing their plan to turn back time on the Erie Canal a hundred years, just like the embankment program is.
