View of construction during the hump removal project along the south side of Diamond Street looking east from near Cherry Way, showing the Diamond Restaurant. The "hump" cut took place in the downtown area known as Grant's Hill. The project began with planning in 1909 and ended with the final cut in 1913. It changed the gradient of Grant Street, Diamond Street, and Oliver, Fifth, Sixth, Webster and Wylie Avenues.
