North view, July 12, 1909. The east reinforced concrete abutment for the Chicago & North Western railroad Mayfair Division Bridge is under construction. The tops of circular concrete piers reaching to bedrock are in the foreground and will be covered by an extension of the abutment. A concrete mixer is on top of the bank at right. The abutments are long in the direction of the channel because of the skewed crossing, about 20 degrees. (MWRD photo 4119)
