The Salt Creek intercepting sewer was constructed rapidly through undeveloped areas in the western suburbs. On November 1, 1927, a mobile crane is being used to remove buckets of tunnel muck from an open shaft along Washington Avenue in Brookfield and dump the muck into a truck to be hauled away. Men in the background are looking down into the shaft. (MWRD photo 13575)
