Description 

This is the New York Central & Hudson River Railroad trestle over the Erie Canal in the City of Lockport. The bridge was removed long ago and replaced by the present Falls Road Railroad trestle at the same location, in fact I think the present trestle sits on the same piers as the earlier bridge. The photographs I attached are stereoview cards that I own.
