Looking south in the south heading on January 29, 1937. Miners are excavating clay on two levels. Heavy-duty steel plate liners are used to support the clay when passing under the railroad due to the additional loading. The tunnel method was used for West Towns outlet sewer section 1 to pass under the Chicago & Illinois Western Railroad. (MWRD photo 22744)
