November 2, 1910. The walls and windows of the pumping station are being installed; the flap gate frames on the tunnel discharge ports are in place. The small holes above the pump tunnel ports are for the flap gate counterweight chains. The concrete floor of the discharge channel remains to be finished, but the wall separating the pump discharge channel from the lock has been completed. (MWRD photo 4543)
