Man Looking out toward the Cuyahoga River

As the Walworth Run Sewer approached the Cuyahoga River, its design was altered to produce a specific desired rate of flow into the latter river. The pipe diameter at the outlet was essentially flattened, as shown in the 1905 photo above, so that it was fifty feet wide, but only fourteen feet high. The structure seen in the distance is the Erie (later, "Nickel Plate") Railroad Trestle
