The completed second expansion of the Racine Avenue Pumping Station in 1963, as shown from the balcony in the northwest corner of the pump room. The second expansion added the two pumps in the foreground. The discharge piping crosses the room and exits through the east wall. All pumps discharging through the east wall can only discharge to the South Fork. (MWRD unnumbered photograph)
