October 22, 1920. A section of crib wall #1 is being removed in this northeast view. Where the rock-filled timber crib wall was in disrepair and could not be stabilized to receive the new concrete cap, it was removed by the derrick on the barge using an orange-peel bucket and replaced with new pilings and concrete wall.
