Looking towards the west on December 12, 1908, three of the four raw sewage pumps are shown in the interior of the Thirty-Ninth Street Pumping Station. The nearest pump is left of center in the foreground and is driven by the three horizontal steam pistons at the ends of the horizontal drive rods. (MWRD photo 3967)
