July 21, 1924. Concrete for the 8-foot diameter Elmwood Park sewer along Chicago Avenue is being poured into the formwork in the background. In the foreground, the concrete has cured and the trench partially backfilled. The crew is beginning to remove the timber struts and sheathing before backfilling the remainder of the trench.
