1920s Rikers Island Landfill Operations -- Scene #9: Overall View

Scene 9 shows a landfilling operations landscape somewhat similar to that in Scene 3 and Scene 6 but with above-water cribwork hardware much more visible than in those scenes. Hand written on the back of the photo are these words: " Digger #3 and Clean-up diggers at Rikers Island July 19th, 1921."
