Canal Bridge - South Toward Yardley

Canal Bridge - South Toward Yardley

My childhood home abutted the towpath of the Delaware Canal in Washington Crossing, Bucks County, Pennsylvania. As a child I found great delight in the still, reflective surface of the canal, the massed greenery alongside it and the elegantly curving delineation of the towpath. I still do.

The 60-mile Delaware Canal is the only remaining, continuously intact canal of the great towpath canal building era of the early and mid-19th century. Today, the canal retains almost all of its features as they existed during its century of commercial operation. The original bridges over the canal were distinctive: Wooden, painted red, in a camel-back shape. The canal and its towpath were designated a state park a 1988 and those ld bridges are now maintained by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania..

This view looking south toward Yardley from near my parents’ house includes encapsulates the tranquility of a landscape I have painted many, many times.
