July 17, 1907. Steel plates riveted to the leaf framework form the upstream face of the leaf. Scaffolding mounted toward the left edge of the leaf is being used to install valves that will allow water to pass through the leaf when it is closed. A similar set of valves will be installed at the opposite end of the leaf at right. (MWRD photo 3606N)
