From the downstream side looking northeast, May 7, 1907. The 48-foot sector gate is in its raised position and its installation appears complete. The 12-foot sector gate awaits installation. The space between the two gates will be filled with a concrete wall and topped with a small gate control house. The southeast end of the fender wall looms in the left background. (MWRD photo 3707)
