August 28, 1934. Looking south from Kinzie at the Chicago and North Western Railway single leaf bascule bridge over the North Branch. This landmark bridge has been idle in the open position since 2000. The two men mark the east-west centerline of the West Side intercepting sewer section 7 after it crossed under the North Branch. The range pole marks the point on the ground below which will be the junction where West Side intercepting sewer section 10 flows in from the north. (MWRD photo 18519)
