View looking north from the Jefferson Street bridge in Joliet, Illinois, showing the Illinois and Michigan Canal and the Desplaines River, 1912. A sign for J.D. Brown & Company druggists is visible. According to J.W. Taylor, the trees between the waterways mark the spot where stood the Reed-McKee mill before the canal was dug.
