September 3, 1936. A huge cofferdam will be constructed to isolate the area where lock structures will be built in the dry. A laborer is guiding the driving of an interlocking steel sheet pile for one cell that will be part of numerous interconnected cells to form a cofferdam. In the background at left, Municipal Pier, presently known as Navy Pier, is visible. (MWRD photo 22026)
