I'm certainly out of my depth here, but I see that the text on the top image appears to be a direct quote from an early-Meiji law concerning land usage -- do a Google search for this text, and then find the text on page 2 of the PDF you find:

往来又ハ下水外河 中等

I can't make a ton of sense of the text of the paper, but I think the new law in this case affected temporary structures built on riverbanks... so perhaps the shack is being demolished because it has been erected in a place where it is no longer allowed to be?
