On June 12, 1926, looking northeast from a point several hundred feet west of Halsted Street, formwork is being installed for the closing portion of the Thirty-Ninth Street conduit extension. When the sewer is complete, the trench backfilled, and a road built for Thirty-Ninth Street, east and west neighborhoods will be connected. (MWRD photo 11801)
