Feeder Canal - Gibson


I found this photograph in the 1986 Chemung County Sesquicentennial (150th Anniversary Program).
This photo is of the feeder canal at Gibson, the first lock in the Chemung Canal circa 1870.
According to the book on the right is Chimney Narrows road following river & crossing Post Creek and continuing up the turnpike. Today it would be East & West Pulteney St. in Corning.
Anyone have a better desrciption of "Chimney Narrows"?
