April 27, 1921. The stilling basin is looking more like a harbor now with construction equipment removed. The northwest and northeast retaining walls appear in the left and right foregrounds, respectively. The new northwest harbor wall appears on the left at mid-depth, and the concrete capped crib wall #2 is across the harbor on the right. The inlet channel appears in the center background as it was built; behind it, the far end of the new 500-foot-long is in the background. (MWRD photo 8125)
