June 1, 1906. Looking south from the terminal wall of the Sanitary & Ship Canal, the east wall and the west levee have reached their full height. Channel excavation has reached full depth in the center, while more excavation must be completed on the right. The Ninth Street swing bridge is in the center background and the Lockport Road bridge over the Des Plaines River is in the right background. (MWRD photo 3437)
