|Columbia is located at the top of this sketch. The Pennsylvania|
Railroad tracks are along the edge of the city, along the river.
Between the railroad tracks and the river is the canal.
|This view of the canal at Columbia is looking south toward the covered bridge. The piers of the bridge in the background are still in the river. You can see the lock and basins in the foreground.|

|Here you can see the many canal boats loaded with coal and the piles of coal that are between the canal and the Susquehanna River.|
