Thanks! I'll admit I haven't looked in a while, but I'd say within the last year. Buh-bye.

404 on the link.  City of Lockport has a new web site.  Webcam is not on new site.  Old site is now Town of Lockport.  No webcam there either.

3409.  I think the 15 minute delay has been resolved.  I was able to get a picture, without much trouble.  The alignment seems to have changed, so stood at the center / peak of the bridge.

My biggest problem was trying to read my phone in the bright sun.  Was almost getting ready to try calling someone, when I noticed that the small smudge on the screen was actdually me.

After confirming the pic was good, I walked back around the corner toward my car and stopped at Tom's Diner for lunch (Han's Hoagie) and to KM's Treats for a banana cream pie ice cream cone.  Yum!

Thanks and Happy Trails!

This webcam ended up being an exercise in persistance. I first stood near the designated spot and brought up the webcam on my phone. No sign of me, or anything currently there. Finally after several minutes, I noticed the picture changed. At least I knew it was working. So I went over to the other side of the canal where the benches are, since that was the current picture, and waited. And waited. Nothin! But the picture was still changing on the website! So, back to the bridge I went, both the north side and then the middle. By the time I got to the middle I finally saw me sitting on the bench! Ah-hah! It seems as though the picture that appears on the website is about 5 minutes or so behind actual time. So after I saved the picture of me sitting on the bench I headed back to my car. By the time I got there, I was able to see me standing on the north side of the bridge, then a few minutes later at the middle. So I saved all three, and will provide them here with my log. Thankfully it was a gorgeous day because I wouldn't want to be standing out there in the winter. Thanks for the interesting experience here!

How sad is it when I have to log a DNF on this?  Webcam was working before I left home but it would no update once I was on the scene.  The Mrs. tried to get it to refresh but it wouldn't.  I'll try to get it next time I am down there.

Well looks like I get a FTL here. Took me 2 trips because I saved the wrong pic the first time. Mrs SF7 didnt mind stopping back on the way home. ( I had to bribe her with a  tea from Timmy's) Very neat area. I have never been here to really give the whole area a close look.I learned the this street is actually a 399ft wide bridge.  We drove over to the canal locks after my visit here. You can see me in the extreme lower right hand corner.  Thanks for my first web cam cache. Took pic, left with new historic knowledge.!
