A north-facing view, April 7, 1922. The intercepting sewer under construction through Evanston passes under West Railroad Avenue approximately where the fire hydrant is located. Tunneling invariably resulted in some surface subsidence, shown by the slight dip in the sidewalk. The Chicago & North Western railroad is to the right. The houses along the west side of the street have been replaced by Kingsley Elementary School. (MWRD photo 8848)
