Workers pose for the photographer in an Auckland Metropolitan Drainage Board sewerage tunnel between Ōkahu and Hobson bays at Ōrākei, Auckland, in 1913. The tunnel was egg-shaped with the narrow end at the bottom. This shape ensured that sewage still moved along the tunnel under a wide range of water flows.
