November 9, 1934. Looking east from the east end of the Kinzie Street bridge over the North Branch, an access shaft is being excavated for construction of the junction chamber for West Side intercepting sewer section 10 to connect with section 7 running under Kinzie Street. The railway freight office is no longer there. The Merchandise Mart in the background is a new building, opened in 1930. (MWRD photo 19009)
