You can find a link to this on our Main ECNA website -

Very early films by Thomas Edison showing what canal transportation was like at the turn of the 20th century

Here's another showing many Erie Canal Boats near NY City waiting for loads to take back up the Hudson River

And here's a nice Erie Canal video from the 1950s

But maybe one of the best is this one... A Hoggee's view of Erie Canal life
