Looking north toward Navy Pier, August 30, 1937. Erection of the northeast lock gate begins. Two bottom trusses of the gate form a “V” pointing to the pintle and two riveted panels rise to the hinge. Formwork for the control house is being erected at left while other structural steel members for the lock gate lie on the lock floor. (MWRD photo 23481)
