Description

WPA (Work Projects Administration) Project No. 65-1-12-43 In this Nov. 27, 1939 dated photo, the view shows the completed runway extension of 1,250 lineal feet, 100 feet in width, with the 100 foot radius turning area at the left. The light area in the foreground between the boundary light and the north end of the hard surface, which is approximately 170 feet in length and 100 feet in width, is a light layer of peastone, chips, and stone dust placed to grade and rolled but without any asphalt emulsion treatment either in the base or top. This area is for the purpose of helping the pilots to locate the end of the runway. A similar area, 35 feet long and the full width of the runway was constructed on the southerly end of the north-south runway.
