Abstract

Author revisits the Garrison Creek sewer scandal to argue that corruption, shoddy workmanship, and patronage deserve to be considered in the history of the city-building process of the North American city during the nineteenth century. In this instance, several city officials and the contractor were held legally responsible for the construction of the sewer at the wrong grade and with inferior bricks and mortar. - (SLD)
