The downstream side of the sluice gates at the Lockport Controlling Works, July 14, 1910. Control building is to right of center. At left are eight sluice gate bays that have never been used and today are buried in backfill. At right is a simple deck bridge on timber bents spanning between the sluice gates and the Bear Trap Dam. Below the bridge is the discharge outlet for the Bear Trap Dam north operating mechanism. The deck bridge and dam control building no longer exist. (MWRD photo 156A)
