June 1, 1937, looking west from the southeast lock gate. The side walls of the lock connecting the east and west gate blocks are constructed with rock-filled cells. The cells will be topped with a concrete cap enclosing the utility ducts. The 80-foot wide lock chamber will be constructed with concrete sidewalls and floor in the space between the two rows of cells at right. (MWRD photo 23172)
