Paris - Part 2 - a place close to home


We can't go too far without finding a canal and it was too true for Paris as well
- here we found the Canal de Saint Martin which began at the
Port de Plaisancy de Paris basin

 
 
 



the commencement of the canal proper - the tunnel entrance



and the tunnel exit - straight into a staircase lock

the operationwas controlled b the lockkeeper - sitting comfortably
the small building on the left





the swing bridge was also controlled remotely by the lockkeeper
