Looking south from the terminal wall on April 17, 1907, the south pier of the Butterfly Dam has been completed and a traveler has been erected to construct the movable leaf. The leaf center column lies on its side waiting to be set upright. The Ninth Street swing bridge appears in the background. (MWRD photo 3511N)
