Steel tie rods connecting the concrete pier cap to the sheeting are being installed on October 7, 1940, to hold the top of the sheeting in place while the space between the sheeting and pier is backfilled with impermeable clay. Looking east along the pier, the so-called “dime” pier is in the left background. (MWRD photo 26388)
