DC-Photo A.11

July 17, 1928. Perhaps the photographer was unaware that the subject of this image would result in trouble for officials at the District and their contractors. A great deal of effort went into removing the remaining spoil along the North Shore Channel to make the vista more appealing to drivers on McCormick Road and to respond to requests by nearby municipalities for recreational space.
