June 18, 1907. At right, a traveler is used to mix and place concrete in constructing the canal wall. To the left of the traveler, a load of aggregate is hoisted for deposition in a materials hopper. At left, the Butterfly Dam continues under construction. The through truss spans between the upstream and downstream piers and the movable vertical leaf is in-place under the through-truss and between the piers. (MWRD photo 3739)
