April 19, 1937, looking west. Notice how close the formwork and reinforcing steel is to the cofferdam cell sheeting in the west cofferdam. When the lock structure is complete, the cofferdam will be removed. The curving reinforcing steel in the center begins to outline the recess for the northwest lock gate. (MWRD photo 22987)
