New dock wall on the west bank of the South Branch is shown on April 27, 1917, looking south toward the Taylor Street and Chicago Terminal railroad bascule bridges, both built by the District in 1901. Removal of old and construction of new dock wall was necessary after the District widened the channel to the specified 200-foot width. (MWRD photo 5880)
