Image(s); Rockwood Headgate #2 under construction, Colonia Ladrillera, Mexico (vicinity), 1906 by H. T. Cory from Calisphere

Note(s); This picture was actually taken on April 2, 1906 and used here because pictures of construction earlier in the year at the beginning of construction for the headgate are of very poor quality.  The picture labels the boat as a suction dredge, but in the photograph used from the previous months photo, it is identified as a ‘Dipper Dredge’.  Additionally earlier photographs of what is an almost identical boat identify it as the dipper Dredge Alpha.
