This is the beginning of some work I'll be doing regarding Canal Labourers between 1780 and 1860. The following two pages are from the beginning of the book Called Common Labour - Workers and the Digging of North American Canals, 1780-1860, (hardback) by Peter Way, Cambridge University Press, 1993, ISBN 0-521-44033-5.
