June 29, 1900. The Jackson Street Bridge, the new powerhouse tailrace channel in the center foreground, and the enlarged channel of the Des Plaines River beyond the bridge. In the left center under the bridge is the nappe of the new Dam No. 1; turbulence of the Des Plaines River can be seen at the base of the dam. Jackson Street is the divide between Sections 17 and 18. The work upstream of the bridge is in Section 17. (MWRD photo, disc 15, image 41)
