The South Fork of the South Branch on June 13, 1977, looking north from the roof of the Racine Avenue Pumping Station. The channel in the foreground receives combined sewage and stormwater pumped during excessive rainfall events. The fill behind the dock wall at right closed off the former East Arm. The Thirty-Fifth Street bridge is in the background. (MWRD photo dated June 13, 1977, unnumbered vault scan)
