June 6, 1910. The lakefront landfill is still growing, but at a slower pace now that most channel excavation has been completed. Machines on the landfill are grading the surface. The temporary trestle for Sheridan Road, formerly at left, has been removed and traffic rerouted over the Linden Avenue Bridge. To the right of center, an earthen embankment keeps water in the stilling basin from the excavation for the pumping station, which is in progress north of the large tree. (MWRD photo 4389)
