        Construction of the Peterborough Lift Lock began in 1896 and finished in 1904. It opened the Otonabee River to navigation connecting Rice Lake and the Kawarthas.(Taken from: Francis, Daniel."I Remember....An Oral History of the Trent-Severn Waterway."Peterborough: Friends of the Trent-Severn Waterway, 1984.) The Lift Lock is considered one of the great engineering projects of the century and is the world's second highest lift lock. The photograph was produced as a souvenir from the town of Peterborough to people who visited it.
