DC-Photo 3.5

July 12, 1909. Compared to Photograph 3.4, the slough north of Foster Avenue is not flooded; the trees are foliated; and the farm field has been cultivated. The narrow water-filled channel is what is left of the Big Ditch. The farm field to the right may be part of the Budlong Pickle Company. (MWRD photo 4113)
