Numerous grain elevators lined the banks of the South Branch, such as the one shown here on January 19, 1910, on the east bank at about Fourteenth Street. Looking north, the Twelfth Street viaduct is in the background. The foreground is the site of the former Iowa Elevator, purchased and demolished for channel widening. Later in the year, a new dock wall will be constructed at left where the men are standing and the land in the foreground will be removed. (MWRD photo 4277)
