View looking north from the east side of the Argyle Street Bridge, May 9, 1911. The District’s work boat is in the foreground; the North Branch Dam and Foster Avenue Bridge are in the background. A person is walking along the path west of the channel, and water is flowing under the bridge from the dam and the Wilmette Pumping Station. Only one sewer was known to have been discharging to the channel as of this time. (MWRD photo 4651)
