Description Photograph. Sepia-toned photo showing construction work for a new railroad bridge over the Rouge River. Printed text on the lower edge of the photo shows "Underwater concrete boxes, 2-12-1920." The view shows two workmen who are standing between two large steel buckets that are used for placing concrete underwater. The workmen appear to be attaching cables and chains to the tops of the buckets so that they can be lifted into position by a construction crane.
