Looking northeast, October 20, 1938. An overview of battery A at the Southwest plant. Final settling tanks are in the foreground and aeration tanks are in the middle ground. The long low building between the aeration and final tanks is the operating gallery. Industries on Chicago’s West Side are in the background. (MWRD photo 24472)
