Three weeks later, May 11, 1937, looking south and down into the same shaft in the prior photograph. The portal of the 12.4-foot by 13.8-foot West Towns outlet sewer section 1 has been completed. When the use of this shaft is no longer needed for construction, the sewer will be extended through the shaft bottom, the shaft backfilled, and the street restored. (MWRD photo 23080)
