By May 5, 1937, the northwest lock gate block is beginning to take shape as viewed from the southwest lock gate block looking north. The block will rise another 15 feet when complete. The northwest lock gate will fit into the recess in the block. The top of Navy Pier is in the background. (MWRD photo 23040)
