Williamsbridge Oval construction about 1936, with WPA workers, trucks,
cranes, and shacks. The photo looks northeast along Reservoir Oval West
between East 208th Street and Wayne Avenue. You can make out the banks, the
promenades, the tennis courts, the athletic field with cinder quarter-mile
track around it to the right, and the baby trees newly planted which are now
huge but are starting to die.
