Some month ago I published some photos from the Henrichenburg boat lift, the new lift from 1962. Today I present some photos from the old boat lift. This boat lift was opened in 1899. This lift is 67 Meters long, 8.2 Meters wide, with a draft of 2 Meters and lift it through a height of 14 Meters to the higher level. It was closed in 1962 after the new was opened. Now it is a part of the Westfälian Industrial Museum. But they could not bring this lift back into use. So we hope they keep in use the new boat lift, now part of the museum too. It will be very interesting in future times to see the the technique from today.
