In 1922, the Portland Water District hired the Bennett Contracting Company to lay 16 inch submarine pipe from Portland to South Portland, to improve water service to South Portland. This photo depicts the dredging and pipe laying machines used to deposit the pipe under water to the east of the former Casco Bay Bridge connecting Portland and South Portland. The City of Portland waterfront appears to be in the background, showing the State Street via duct on the left.Show Details
