Can you tell me the year of this picture wich you posted recently of the Aqueduct. I am no doubt wrong in my first estimate of 1856 as notice the Electric wire poles and buildings in the background. Someone suggested that the year is probably turn of the century (1900?) I do know that the first construction ended in 1856 . The low water level threw me off but notice the grass has grown on the banks. The aqueduct was widened in 1870, 1905, 1907 and 1913.
