PUBLIC RESTROOMS 2: Work on on the public bathrooms continues. Struts have been placed on the wall to keep the utility lines in place. The black vertical pipe is the main outlet from the floors above. It is made of cast iron to keep noise to a minimum. Several closet carriers have been installed. [Photo & text: sa]
