Looking west, August 20, 1925. The flume is in the center behind the industrial track used to transport material and spoil. Open cut sheeting follows the sewer alignment on both sides of the flume. Beyond the flume, standing water in the North Branch is caused by construction debris in the foreground obstructing the flow. (MWRD photo 12089)
