September 15, 1899. The excavation of the enlarged channel for the Des Plaines River in Section 18 looking north toward the Cass Street Bridge from the Jefferson Street Bridge. The I&M Canal parallels the river on the left behind the tree. The remnants of a low dam visible in the right foreground was removed in this reach. (MWRD photo, disc 13, image 6)
