July 23, 1940. Before and after photographs are taken of all structures along the route of the Southwest intercepting sewer. At 3905 South Wentworth Avenue, surveyors are making preconstruction measurements to have for comparison with postconstruction measurements should any claims for settlement damages be filed. The west elevation of this two-story brick building may be susceptible to cracks if settlement occurs on sewer section 10. (MWRD photo 26091)
