May 22, 1937. The gantry crane in the pump and blower building is lowering the casting onto the pump room floor. The casting is the lower half of the split case for a main sewage pump and is upside down. The flange on top in this view is the bottom flange of the split case and in its final position will be in the wet well beneath the floor connected to the pump suction bell. The flange to the right will connect to the discharge pipe leading out the west side of the building. (MWRD photo 23109)
