Looking south, March 1, 1939. Sewage pump one on the pump room floor in the plant pump and blower building. At left is the triple expansion steam driven turbine that powers the pump in the center. The upper flange of the lower half of the split case is indicated by the arrow. Above the flange is the upper volute split case with external ribs for reinforcing the volute walls. To the right and below the upper volute split case is a smaller split case part to complete the volute. (MWRD photo 24643)
