Footer troubler

Let me give you a back story about our foundation. Since our house was built in 1920s, the footer was only one foot thick. Kinda scary just to think about it. But I'm pretty sure all houses around here in LA are pretty much the same. You can see it from this photo. In order to add a new room to the existing, we have to go in and retrofit the old foundation to current code, which is 24" thick. 
 Here's what they did. They dug underneath the footers and pour concrete in.
