New Lock Dry.
The New or Poe lock, which you see here, is on the north side next the river. It is 800 ft. long, 100 ft. wide, and 43 ft. deep to floor.
It was built in 1887 to 1896, and cost 4 million dollars. It was planned by General O. M. Poe, and received his name.
Channels beginning above the upper gates, extend the length of lock beneath the floor. Water is admitted to these channels through valves, and passes up into the lock through the openings in the floor.
