First breach of the Industrial Canal on the east side

The east side north breach of the Industrial Canal was about 250 feet wide. Steel sheet pilings came to rest in a dramatic fashion remaining interconnected and looking like a giant metal grosgrain ribbon. At the left is the Florida Avenue Bridge. Photo/Roy Arrigo
