Eight months later on June 7, 1938, from the same point, the east cofferdam has been removed, the east lock gates are closed, the east guide walls have been extended, and the one remaining gap in the south lock wall is being completed. In the foreground, the southwest lock gate is in its recess and part of the west cofferdam remains while finishing work is in progress. (MWRD photo 24122)
