A bridle path was not the only reason for spoil removal. The National Brick Company continued its obligation to remove excess clay spoil for the manufacture of bricks at its plant south of Howard Street. A tug and barge passing Howard Street on its way to the company’s nearby dock are shown in this July 17, 1928, photo. The outfall on the west bank is part of Skokie’s Howard Street sewer.
