Looking southeast over construction of the North Branch Dam, January 20, 1910. Concrete work has been completed and laborers are cleaning up construction debris. The dragline is preparing to remove the downstream berm, isolating the work area of the dam from the channel. The Argyle Street Bridge east abutment and pier is in the left background.
