Looking north on October 10, 1940. In front of the east elevation of the southwest corner of Pershing Road and State Street, the sewer connection to Southwest intercepting sewer section 10 has been completed and the excavation backfilled. After allowing time for settlement, the sheeting will be cut down and the curb and sidewalk replaced. (MWRD photo 26405)
