This is an original 1882 black and white wood engraving of the Caledonian Canal in Northern Scotland, which was originally constructed by engineer Thomas Telford in the early 19th century. The canal served to increase employment in the Highland area, as, at the time, the Highland Clearances prohibited the natives of their residences, jobs, as well as implemented laws to abolish their culture, including their rights to speak Gaelic, play the bagpipes, wear tartar and more. The canal also served to provide a safer voyage for wooden ships, so as they could avoid the often perilous route of Cape Wrath and the Pentland Firth.
