A view from the Summit-Lyons Road Bridge looking northeasterly shows the transition in channel size at the division between Sections F and G, the current location of Harlem Avenue, April 13, 1899. Notice that the slope paving on the right bank extends farther upstream to the limit of Section F, while the transition occurs within the end of Section F on the left bank.
