Original Lock Tenders Picture and proposed sculptures

Taking the iconic 1897 photograph of Lockport lock tenders as reference, artist Susan Geissler will create a 13-figure cast bronze sculpture to place on the stairway between Locks 70 and 71, where the photograph was originally taken. Mills Jewelers is helping to raise funds make the life size sculptures a reality for Lockport.

Your Donation of $2 per ticket or $5 for 3 Tickets will enter you for a chance to win a $500 gift card from Mills Jewelers.


All proceeds will go toward installing actual life size characters on the same steps where the original crew sat for the now famous photograph.

Raffle tickets are on sale at the Locks District Booth on Canal Street every Saturday through Locktoberfest during the Lockport Community Farmers Market, and at Mills Jewelers and the Flight of Five Winery.

The winner will be announced at Locktoberfest, Saturday September 28
