Looking north at the point where sheeting passes through the federal inner breakwater, October 1, 1940. The breakwater is a rock-filled timber crib securely founded on the lake bottom with timber piles, topped with a concrete cap and wall, to diminish wave intensity and calm water movement. The breakwater was not designed to be impermeable. (MWRD photo 26397)
