The wooden piling at left, along the line of what will become Hoyne Avenue, was the upstream end of the West Arm of the South Fork on May 3, 1910. The upstream extension beyond the piling had already been filled in. Across the arm, the gap in the piling is where the inlet to the West Thirty-Ninth Street conduit will be built. The conduit drained the arm to a sewer in Western Avenue discharging to the Sanitary & Ship Canal. North of the arm are a few homesteads. (MWRD photo 4351)
