Carpenters are building forms for the reinforced concrete foundation of the Evanston Pumping Station, October 23, 1919. A stiff-leg derrick is used to lower materials; a concrete mixer stands ready next to the field office. The house on the right across Elmwood Avenue no longer exists; the site is presently occupied by the Evanston Police Department headquarters. The houses south of Lake Street remain to the present time. (MWRD photo 7322)
