December 8, 1898. The installation of the rollers for the swing bridge turntable for the Santa Fe Railroad in Section 8. This view, looking southwesterly, also shows the rock wall left in the Main Channel excavation to support the temporary timber trestle for the railroad, and beyond is the top of the temporary timber trestle for the Lemont Road (Stephen Street) crossing. A cableway tower remains in the left upper background. (MWRD photo, disc 11, image 5)
