Where a wide, open channel diversion ditch was constrained by adjoining buildings and a bridge, a timber flume was constructed, as shown here on July 12, 1923, looking west of Halsted Street toward the Morgan Street bridge. The buildings at left house Union Stock Yards and Transit Company power and water utilities. (MWRD photo 9865)
