This view is of water making a small waterfall below the portal area of the Roosevelt Drainage Tunnel, which I know it is at, as I had compared this with other known views of the flow of water from the Roosevelt Drainage tunnel, and it match views from that location when looking at the middle part on this view where there is a log on the right-hand side.

This Group-Photo of workers, management and equipment at the Portal of the Roosevelt Drainage Tunnel during its construction has been used in an article in the July 1914 edition of the Mining Science journal/magazine, so it predates that date with an unknown time. No names given in neither of my sources for this image, but there are many men here.
   Image shows 8-ore-cars filled with rock from the tunnel work, also three horses are held in front of the cars, uncertain if they where the motive power used to haul the cars out of the tunnel. There are also some other foot powered rail cycle types shown, a shed makes up some of the background, a compressor building of some sort as there is a large pipe coming from it into the tunnel opening.

This postcard was to lovely to miss out, even if I have another copy of it... A great view of the Portal of the great Roosevelt Drainage Tunnel, marked as photo by L.J. Oakes while my other copy says Victor Studio, and they both are marked as a ''The Top of the World Foto Company'' postcard on the backside. One of my cards is post marked August 15, 1912 so that help date this image as it must have been taken at least the day before that date, most likely months, possible even year(s) before.
   The scene is showing the water rushing out from the tunnel so the work on it must somehow have either stopped for a while, or even be looked upon as finished, I do not know. There is a lot of water coming so possible there is a story behind this image.
   What I see when I compare this to another postcard that did show people and equipment is that the large pipe for compressed air that was running out from the tunnel, connecting to the structure just right of the tunnel, that is missing in this scene.

Photo is marked as showing the Flow of Water from the Roosevelt Drainage Tunnel after cutting the second water course, but as there is no date given it is hard to judge any date this might been taken, but I assume this view is from when they hit the second water course, possible around end of 1908.
   In the upper part of this view is seen support structures at the portal area, when comparing this to the image showing the First Flow there is now a shed around the smokestack seen near left side of the before mention image and also seen poking up from the roof just left of the water tank near upper left. The water is coming from the tunnel, located behind the shed, which in turn is behind the water tank seen.

Photo is marked as showing the First Flow of Water from the Roosevelt Drainage Tunnel, but there is no date given so it is hard to judge if this is after the completion of the tunnel or during the work in it as it did drain water along the way when they dug into the hillsides of the District. I've got a companion photo talking about the flow after the second water course, so I assume this view is from when they hit the first water course, possible around October 1908.
   In the upper part of this view is seen support structures at the portal area, at least four shed like structures, and a water tank for some sort of use unknown to me, with the new waterfall coming from the tunnel, most likely located behind the shed, which in turn is behind the water tank seen.
