Looking northeast, August 30, 1937, from the concrete mixing tower over the west gate block. The nearly completed northwest lock gate sits in its recess, the northwest control house is closed in, and the southwest control house is under construction in the foreground. In the left background, the navigation light stands at the east end of the federal north pier. (MWRD photo 23485)
