A trip down the Grand Canal



Inside photos....

(click on images to enlarge)

It's been great going through all my books....maps....journals....I'm finding things I forgot I have. This is one of the treasures I hadn't look at in awhile.

It's a looooong photo of all the buildings along the Grand Canal....both sides. When closed it's 5 - 1/2" X 13" it's 5 - 1/2" X 40'.....

All the sites are labeled and many also have the century they were originally built.

A real joy for those of us that still love picture books!!

(ps...if you want to see all the books I've on the LABELS: Books link on the lower left)


  1. If you want to get '5½' rather than '5 - 1/2', type '171' on the number keys while you hold down the 'Alt' key. I don't know if this works on a lap-top or a Mac, but Google 'alt codes' for more. Or copy and paste from somewhere that has the character you want.

  2. Bert...thanx for the advice. It didn't work on my Mac....but I did find some other nifty symbols!! BUT you got me thinking...I'm sure there must me a way to do this on my Mac.....
