October 16, 1924. The new outfall for the Thirty-Ninth Street conduit extension, located west of Racine Avenue, is still under construction. The railroad bridge at Racine Avenue is in the background. In addition to the outfall, a connection at right was constructed and fitted with a bulkhead for future flow to be diverted to the planned Racine Avenue Pumping Station. The station was not in service until 1939. (MWRD photo 11247)
