The A. H. March Meat Packing Plant in Bridgeport, PA. Like so many manufacturers and residents at the time, the meat packing plant was disposing of its wastes and garbage onto the banks of the Schuylkill Canal. Most likely, they were depending on the next rise in the river level to carry away the wastes. Image provided by the Historical Collection of the Philadelphia Water Department.
