Looking north from a point north of Sixteenth Street, construction of the east wall of the extended Sanitary & Ship Canal is proceeding by January 9, 1906. The concrete wall is founded upon bedrock, and, for additional support, a rock fill embankment is buttressed on the land side shown at right. The new Ninth Street swing bridge crossing the extended canal is in the background. (MWRD photo 3295)
