July 17, 1936. The northwest corner of the pump and blower building of the Southwest plant is shown before backfilling to raise the finished grade to just below the top of the concrete wall. The two below grade rectangular holes in the concrete wall are entrances to an extensive underground tunnel network for employees and utilities. (MWRD photo 21595)
