August 6, 1907, looking southeast. A large gap has been opened in the west end of the terminal wall while the cofferdam holds back the water in the original channel. The end of the west wall, visible at right through the gap, will be extended to connect to the remaining terminal wall while the east end of the terminal wall is removed. Also visible through the gap is the Butterfly Dam north pier and horizontal through truss. (MWRD photo 3622N)
