View of Easton Redux

Some of you really enjoyed the old etching of Easton (click link for details) from the early-mid 19th century found in Rupp’s history:

This past weekend, I went on a little field trip around the Delaware and snapped this photo which is roughly the same area (though at line of sight rather than from on high):

This was taken from the Canal Museum park.  Beautiful day to do so; the damn in the front-left is the Forks of the Delaware–where the Lehigh and Delaware Rivers officially meet and split off from each other.  Where the big red corporate building is now was the location of the ferry in the etching above.
