April 26, 1899. The I&M Canal in Section 18 looking north toward the Cass Street Bridge. The Des Plaines River is to the right, and the wall between the canal and river protects the canal from variations in river level. This view is from near the Jefferson Street Bridge and the Guard Lock. (MWRD photo, disc 11, image 95)
