April 11, 1907. Work in the Lockport Powerhouse forebay is underway to complete the turbine bay trash racks and miter gates. The west canal wall is in the right foreground, and the fender wall with arched openings runs diagonally across the forebay. Numerous windows in the north powerhouse wall admit natural light into the generator room. (MWRD photo 3666)
