This view, of the Fairmount Dam and Water Works and the Callowhill St. Bridge, was taken from a boathouse ramp above the dam on the Schuylkill River. Two steamboats are moored above dam, and the roof of a bathing pavilion is visible below dam. Sewer construction is also underway along the Esplanade below the Water Works.
