Description

August 3, 1944. This view shows the completed building at the Municipal Refuse Disposal Grounds consisting of the main Salvage Depot shown in the center which is approximately 100 feet in length by 30 feet in width with small garage attached at one end also tool shack at left which is used for warming house in winter, and hose house shown at right in the distance. All buildings are covered with sheet metal, roofs and siding, for fire protection. The hose house is built over a concrete underground manhole which houses the water meter and provides a 2 inch water main with approximately 300 feet of fire hose for emergency use. All buildings have been painted with a camouflage gray paint, asphaltum base, and were constructed almost entirely with salvaged materials and by Street Department employees. This picture also shows the newly constructed mixed-in-place roadway in front of the buildings.
