An underground septic tank under construction on the grounds of the William M. Rice Institute. The image shows the above-ground enclosure framed and partially covered with wooden planks. There is a small single-door shed at the edge of a pit in the background, with piles of planks on the right-hand side, along with a scattering of trees in the distance. Written on the lower left-hand side: “E. W. Irish Photo Co.” and “Septic Tank”. Original resource is a black and white photograph.
