August 3, 1937. “209E” painted on the steel sheeting identifies cell number 209 of the east cofferdam. Looking northeast at the northeast lock gate recess shows that much of the concrete work has been completed and installation of the gate track is beginning. The large opening at the base of the wall right of center and the gate on the wall left of center is the inlet and outlet, respectively, for maintenance flushing of the gate recess. (MWRD photo 23436)
