Along the canal you find many pedestrian walkways,
arched high over the canal to allow for passing boats.
Although I have never taken the trip, many report that a leisurely excursion on Canal St. Martin gives a different view along the quais. My friend Marie and I watched this boat pass through the locks on a bright Sunday afternoon. On canal Saint-Martin alone there are seven bridges, the majority of which are passerelles piétonnes (footbridges).
They all have names and I will have to search to put the proper name and location on this one. It is very close to Hotel du Nord on Quai de Jemmapes.
