    That's a Bridgeport Loop. Looks sort of like a bridge, doesn't it?
    Retired and loving it.

    Was it an attempt at a cross over trap to vent that return.....which looks like it would have a water loop on the right hand side of it anyway?

    That definitely looks like something you would see in Bridgeport Chicago ( The Daley family home town). There's the long standing jokes about when they starting installing inside toilets in Bridgeport that many a bathroom door needed to be cut out in shape of the toilet bowl so you could close the door.

    So these are all in Chicago?

    And who here did not listen to Uncle John's post until the end of the song?

    I love that stuff!
