Description Dredging and Construction of Lagoons for Foster City, 1962. Black and white negative shows the dredging and construction of lagoons and canals for Foster City, California. One canal runs from the lower left corner of the image to the upper right. The canal wall appears to still be under construction with exposed rebar on the right bank. At the end of the canal runs through a pipe underneath an earthen bridge. On the bridge are two trucks and several workers. Behind them in the background at upper right is the drawbridge section of the 1929 San Mateo-Hayward Drawbridge. Part of a series.
