    OH WOW, that had to smell REALLY BAD.. I used to hate helping to clean out the community swimming pool after it sat over winter with the water lowered, to just below the outlets from the filter system. It was awful smelly. Cannot imagine those canals..

    My question is where do they carry off the muck. or are those bins actually part of the drainage system to carry off the silt through a pipe underneath?
    Never try to tell me it can't be done

    Canal cleaning? First off, who accepts the water drained away. Then, old as Venice is, tells me sewage collects as well. And to the mid-left; spectators?

    In 1952 it would have been Bess Truman, not Mamie Eisenhower.

    Yeah, I guess you're right, Ike wouldn't have been sworn in until the following January .......

    Wow! Not only did these guys have to know how to drive, but they had to be able to administer First Aid to both victims AND ambulances, ..... when needed.

    Edit:

    Boy, I have a pair of hips which need drastic replacement, and the pain killers and muscle relaxants I am on are really messing with my timing in posting responses. Sorry about that.

    Venice disposes sewage into its famous canals. It's swept out by tides twice-daily. It has modernized somewhat, but this practice is still common: https://www.venipedia.org/wiki/index...ewage_disposal
