A finished section of intercepting sewer tunnel looking north, August 30, 1922. The interior bracing and forms have been removed, and the concrete reveals the outline of the form boards. The North Side Intercepting Sewer No.1 extended from south of Oakton Street north to Sheridan Road in Wilmette. It was 6.5 feet high south of Lake Street and 4.5 feet high north of Lake Street.
