November 21, 1935. The same operation on the same day as in the preceding photograph occurs in the west heading from the same shaft on the route of Southwest intercepting sewer section 3. The concrete in the hopper drops onto a conveyor belt and is moved up to the crown of the sewer closer to the heading as shown in the background, where it is placed in the sidewall forms of the sewer.
