James Heyworth brought in a larger dragline for excavation on section 12, the reach from Lawrence Avenue to north of Foster Avenue. The bucket is being pulled toward the machine against the slope, thus loading the bucket, July 12, 1909. Heyworth even gave his machines names, like McCormick and Roosevelt. (MWRD photo 4112)
