July 29, 1927. A close-up of an end wall and first interior vertical wall shows the intricate construction of the Imhoff tanks for all three batteries at the West Side plant. The rectangular notched boxes cast into the end wall are inlets and outlets for flow through the upper compartment of the Imhoff tank. (MWRD photo 13388)
