April 14, 1925. The many construction shafts must be sealed before a contract is complete. All hoisting machinery has been removed from this shaft and the contractor will install forms and pour the reinforced concrete crown of the sewer. When cured, the shaft above will be backfilled and the surface restored. (MWRD photo 11655)
