Description

August 3, 1944. This view taken from the same position on the sand hill across from the railroad track from which the preceding view was taken shows the remaining section of the road leading from the slope on the old railroad fill known as Cat's Island. This road has all been recently improved by constructing mixed-in-place stabilized base using was crank-case oil and constructing an armor coat wearing surface with peastone and chips penetrated with HRM asphaltic emulsion. Note the Salvage Depot building where all salvageable materials are handled and processed, also the small hose house for fire protection equipment and the smoke rising from the far end of the "Island" where all unsalvageable wastes are burned daily.

Genre(s): photographs, black-and-white photographs
