Looking north across the pumping station site, August 29, 1910. Pump tunnel formwork is to the right of center. The completed southwest retaining wall is to the left of center and the hole in the retaining wall is the outfall for the North Shore Intercepting Sewer, construction of which began in 1914. Above this wall is a concrete mixing plant and a temporary trestle for the delivery of construction materials. (MWRD photo 4485)
