July 15, 1925. A hopper at right is being lifted to dump its load of materials into the Koehring concrete mixer. The hoppers were loaded at the contractor’s batching plant near Oakton Street with the correct amount of aggregate, cement, and sand for one mixer batch of concrete. Several hoppers were towed by a locomotive to the paving site. (MWRD photo 11940)
