Old surveying equipment, original wood water pipes and valves, gauges and other sewer system components are among the artifacts visitors can see at the Sesqui-Shop beginning this week.
The exhibit, A City at Work, is part of Boises celebration of its 150th anniversary. It examines how the citys first infrastructure irrigation canals and water, sewer and power lines were built. Groups that undertook those projects and helped shape the city include Idaho Power, United Water, the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation and Boise Public Works.
The exhibit opens Thursday and runs through Nov. 29 at the Sesqui-Shop, 1008 W. Main St.
The shop is holding a special open house from 4 to 8 p.m. Thursday.
