Photo 2.65

September 27, 1937. The northwest lock gate hinge as seen from below. The pintle at bottom is hidden from view and the upper hinge is partially visible. At left, the staff gauge embedded in the wall indicates that the top of the wall is seven feet above CCD. The top of the solid face of the lock gate in Photo 2.63 is six feet above CCD. Both tops are several feet above historic high levels of Lake Michigan. (MWRD photo 23577)
