Can someone help identify the general locations of slides from Trip 3 of Three Trips?

Back at it in the New Year, Trip 3 of 3 Trips: Identify locations from slides taken in the 1950s.
19 months ago, January 14th 2018 No: 1 Msg: #203728  
Repeated Information: I have digitized my father's photos from the 1940s and 1950s and have been able to identify everything except the locations of these trips. My parents lived in Akron, Ohio and traveled to all the states touching Ohio. They spent some summer vacations in Luther, Michigan (SW of Cadillac); they drove several times to the East Coast, and they drove to Florida.

To the best of my knowledge, these slides represent Trip 3. I believe that they are properly ordered, but an astute eye might think otherwise. Here are my best guesses as to the locations, but they are just guesses:

New Information: Photos 3.1 to 3.23 (Photos 1 to 23)(Photos 26 to 48): Perhaps Pennsylvania, New York Finger Lakes, and/or St. Lawrence Seaway



Photo 3 looks like ore processing; Photo 6 is clearly a lock; photos 10 – 15 would seem to have historical significance since there are markers; photos 17 – 22 show a significant bluff along a significant body of water.

Any information that anyone might recognize would be so helpful. Thank you. Reply to this
