View of the canal just off Main Street

This is the view from canal in Manayunk, looking north. Manayunk & Roxborough are on the banks of the Schuylkill River. The old canal parallels the river. We're looking at the backs of buildings on Main Street. I drew this while sitting on the long dormant train tracks on the other side of the canal, This drawing was done with a fountain pen, brush pen and a color pencil. It took over two hours to draw. (Yikes!)
