Looking north from Foster Avenue in Chicago, April 19, 1909. A flooded slough—the former and mostly filled-in Big Ditch. Channel excavation had not yet begun in this area and the view shows the occasionally wooded areas along the channel route. The farm field to the right lies fallow. (MWRD photo 4075)
