From the southeast along McCormick Road, October 16, 1927. The Pump and Blower Building exterior and what appears to be a main entrance. The decorative entrance is not used; the working entrances are on the north and west sides of the building. Howard Street, an unimproved two-lane road at this time, is just out of view on the left. As shown by the sign, John Griffith & Son Company, Builders, was the contractor for this building. (MWRD photo 13506)
