Museum aide James Fisher. Ceilings in a few engineering halls were omitted to permit visitors to see ducts, conduits, pipes, values, mixing chambers and other mechanical equipment of a modern building. This image shows a portion of the Tunneling Section of the Civil Engineering Hall, showing installation of wooden and steel bracing structures for soft earth. The exhibits for these were prepared in advance of the completion of the building.
