Locks at the Locks

New Savannah Bluff Lock and Dam is located on the Savannah River in Augusta, Georgia. One interesting and sort of peculiar feature of the Locks is that people have locked padlocks to the metal fences around the Lock site. There are hundreds of these locks. Some seem to be very old and others a bright and new. Many have inscriptions and dedications. There is some indication that the practice is associated with locking relationships between people. It was interesting and unusual to see.
