May 28, 1894. A point west of the I&M Canal on an embankment separating the I&M Canal from the construction of the Main Channel in the vicinity of Summit. The Summit-Lyons Road Bridge over I&M Canal is left of center. The Des Plaines River and construction of the Main Channel is to the right of the embankment. The structure in the center is believed to be a SDC canal construction field office and police station on the Summit-Lyons Road. (MWRD photo, disc 3, image 10)
