George Wisner, District chief engineer, addresses a crowd for the groundbreaking of the Evanston Intercepting Sewer at 3:00 pm on August 23, 1916, at the intersection of Custer and Mulford streets in Evanston. The several trustees and local officials also on the platform preceded Wisner in speaking. Refreshments were served in the tent, and a local band played music. (MWRD photo 5606)
