Looking east, August 30, 1937. The upper lock gate hinge is supported by the fabricated structural steel assemblage in the center, which will be encased in concrete. The upper hinge supports less of the gate weight but is important to control the horizontal motion of the gate. Across the gate recess, concrete work on the east wall of the recess has been completed. (MWRD photo 23479)
