DC-Photo 4.43

Earlier in late Jan. or early Feb. 1927, the exterior of the southeast corner of the Pump and Blower Building is still being installed, while interior electrical and mechanical work is underway, using the large door for access on the west side of the building. The rail spur in the building in Photo 4.54 was routed through this door. The construction activity at the southwest corner is for the underground sewage discharge conduit that runs under the Mayfair Division tracks. (MWRD photo 13177)
