Additional Details:
The pumping station at Waterworks Park is a sight well worth seeing. The ponderous machinery in connection with its mammoth pumps forces 103,000,000 gallons of water through the mains every twenty-four hours. This view shows the three Allis-Chalmers triple expansion engines. The fly wheels on each of the engines weigh more than forty tons each.
