Sealing the federal north pier followed the same construction method as the inner breakwater. Looking east along the pier, October 7, 1940, the contractor is driving steel sheeting into the lakebed several feet north of the pier. To the right of the north pier navigation light tower it can be seen that the north wall enclosing the inner harbor has been completed. (MWRD photo 26387)
