Looking from the west side of the channel southwest of the pumping station, November 25, 1910. Laborers are seen completing the installation of the southwest miter gates for the lock. The pump tunnel flap gates and chains are already in place. In four days, water will be admitted to the channel in advance of the coming winter. The masonry walls of the pumping station are in place, but the windows have yet to be glazed. (MWRD photo 4552)
