Looking north over the pump floor in the Southwest plant pump and blower building on November 16, 1938. One steam-driven turbine in the foreground is driving the centrifugal pump behind it. In total, there are six pairs of turbines and pumps. Four are partially visible in this view. (MWRD photo 24524)
