Pedestrians, cyclists, and motorists moved back and forth across the Des Seigneurs bridge.
The bridge carries the rue des Seigneurs across the canal. The lock is one of five locks that still operate along the canal's length. At least, I assume they are in working order and probably operate to allow recreational boats to pass through the canal. I took more than a few photos at this spot; here are some of them.
A dock that rises and falls with the water level.
Downtown Montréal is not too far away at this point.

Looking down-canal (toward the north-east). The lock doors were closed on this end.
