Looking west-northwest across the terminal wall, December 19, 1906. The crib wall is positioned in the canal away from the terminal wall. It and flanking embankments below the water surface contain rocks, stone, sand, and clay to create an impermeable barrier. It is already deformed by the force of water on the upstream side. Bear Trap Dam and sluice gate structures are in the background. (MWRD photo 3556)
