January 30, 1914. A completed section of the slope stability demonstration project on the northwest bank of the channel west of West Railroad Avenue (later renamed Green Bay Road). The demonstration proved effective and the method was used elsewhere. Notice the line of distinctive District transmission towers in the background, supplying electrical power to the Wilmette Pumping Station. (MWRD photo 4909)
