  1. They weren’t along the Lehigh; they were along the Monocacy. They can been seen along Conestoga St in “the hole.”

    I think you are right about them being along the Monocacy, too. But, there are some walls along the north bank of the Lehigh River, between it and River Street, by the Hill-to-Hill Bridge on Sand Island: https://goo.gl/maps/DBxpV6vdLNbK2qLS6. I’ve always thought they were New Deal resources, as well.
