Here a dredger works in the slip between what will be Piers 50 and 51. Beyond it a pile driver i placijng support for the new Pier 50. This, of course, reverses Henry Yesler’s decades of dumping here to extend his wharf further into Elliott Bay. What he once gave is now taken away. The northern border of the Columbia and Puget Sound Railroad’s small train yard appears behind the dredger on the slip leading to the north side of Peir 49.
