Abstract : This booklet is designed to commemorate the fiftieth anniversary of the completion of a 9-foot navigable channel on the Ohio River, which was accomplished with the opening of Lock and Dams 52 and 53 in 1929. The presentation begins with a view of the Ohio River as seen in 1929, and is then divided into three parts, concerned with past, present, and future. The, main segment in terms of space is the historical treatment, relating to the development of the waterway. The arrangement is topical, however, rather than chronological. The objective is a broad view of features of general interest, supported by a selection of photographs, maps, tabulations, and diagrams. For reasons of brevity, many interesting aspects have of necessity been omitted.
