August 24, 1927. An overview looking west of construction of battery A at the West Side plant from the concrete mixing tower shows the south end of the Imhoff tanks and the precast wall panels at right. Mixed concrete is transported by rail to the south cableway tower in the center. Both rail-mounted cableway towers move synchronously in the east-west direction. (MWRD photo 13429)
