Williamsbridge Oval Historical Photos - Photo #9


Williamsbridge Oval Playground construction in (I think) Spring or Summer of 1935, looking north. The tunnel entrance is clearly visible in back, right of center. It is not visible in the previous photo which seems to indicate the WPA built it, instead of simply inheriting it from the reservoir. I count about 75 workers in the pit.
