2-cent Ohio River Canalization single

Issued on October 19, 1929, this red 2-cent stamp commemorated the canalization of the Ohio River with a red 2-cent stamp. The project's slogan, "Nine feet, Pittsburgh to Cairo," underscores the immensity of the undertaking. The stamp pictures a lock and dam, specifically lock number 5, on the Monongahela River.
