Entitled: A ship goes up in a lift.

Top picture:
The hydraulic lift at Peterborough, in Ontario, the largest of its kind in the world. Each lift chamber holds 1300 tons of water and when the ship is safely inside, and the doors at each end are closed, the whole is raised by hydraulic pressure a distance of 65 feet. This lock cost £100,000. To raise a ship to the higher level takes only twelve minutes.

Bottom picture:
A barge floating into the Anderton lift from the Trent Canal, which is fifty feet above the River Weaver, in Cheshire. When the barge is inside and the doors of the lift are closed the whole apparatus is lowered bodily to the river below.
