Runners, bikers, and paddle boats are commonly spotted along Indianapolis’ Central Canal as it stretches from Broad Ripple to the downtown Canal Walk. A stretch of the canal that is infrequently seen by towpath is the aqueduct that allows the waterway to cross Fall Creek, between Bursdal Parkway and 16th Street. A view of the Indianapolis aqueduct is captured along with Ernest’s request for Mrs. Adin Haverly not to write him … yet.
