September 27, 1937. Completion of the erection of the northeast lock gate nears. The pintle and upper hinge is at left, flanked by the two open sides of the triangular gate. The open sides allow the gate to move easily through the water. Notice the curved track in center foreground, the gate is supported by rollers that bear on the track. The edge of the southeast lock gate is at right. (MWRD photo 23571)
