Photograph of construction work on an unidentified asphalt street, [s.d.]. At center, extending into the right background, a set of street car tracks can be seen. Along their edge, three workers can be seen pulling up chunks of asphalt, while in the foreground, a fourth worker looks on. In the left foreground and right background, early steamrollers billow fog and obscure more workers in the center background.
