Williamsbridge Oval Historical Photos - Photo #10

Photo: NYC Parks Photo Archive.
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.
