North-facing view from a point midway between Howard and Oakton streets, July 11, 1924. The route of the proposed McCormick Road lies to the right of the row of transmission towers. At left is the rail siding entrance to the North Side Sewage Treatment Works construction; the manufactured gas plant and holding tank is in the left background. The Mayfair branch railroad is at right with the Weber yard in the right background. (MWRD photo 10872)
