    The Erie Canal is over 300 miles long, stretching across the whole state of New York from Albany to Buffalo. But we don't have to travel the whole length of the canal to learn about it — although it might be fun! The canal came right through the city of Rochester. By looking at the canal here, maybe we can find out how the canal worked in those far-away places.

    Walker Evans had a reputation, if not a steady income, as a photographer when Roy Stryker hired him at the Resettlement Administration in October 1935. Evans had taken up photography in 1928, at the age of twenty-five. He lived, in his own words, "very shabbily" in New York City, where he began to experiment with the medium by photographing city street life and vernacular architecture and by making portraits of his artist and intellectual friends. During the late 1920s and early 1930s, his paid projects included illustrating a book that exposed the evils of Cuba's Machado regime and photographing African sculpture for the Museum of Modern Art.
