The West Arm of the South Fork looking northwest toward the West Thirty-Ninth Street conduit inlet at Hoyne Avenue, if extended, on April 26, 1911. This arm was the original Bubbly Creek and is completely covered by a scum of floating sewage solids. The inlet and conduit was a failed attempt to remedy the offensive nuisance of Bubbly Creek by drawing off some of the sewage and diverting it to the Sanitary & Ship Canal. (MWRD photo 4630)
