Mangroves lined the shore, and slowly created new land. The water became so still that it reflected the mangroves growing above, into the water below. A Christian cross had been erected on what might have been a gravesite. It was distantly visible on shore. A home stood on shore and was barely visible, hidden by vast greenery. A navigation buoy seemed too large for the rowboat on shore. The land was a green slice, sandwiched between the blue sky and the rippled blue water of the estuary. Workers beefed up the breakwater by adding huge interlocking pieces of concrete. View all

A plaque described the reason for this monument to the 1934 West Coast Waterfront Strike. It read: In memory of Howard Sperry and Nick Bordoise, who gave their lives on Bloody Thursday, July 5, 1934, so that all working people might enjoy a greater measure of dignity and security. A union kitchen was set up to provide meals for the union striking workers and their families. Shoulder to shoulder stood longshoremen, seamen, teamsters, and the labor council. One face of the monument exhibited a scaffolding with clocks, steel bar, and sacks of coffee. Below, a large and strong longshoremen's arm handles rope, while the owner reads his book of profits.

The new anti-jump fence was installed directly adjacent to the sidewalk. A section of the new anti-jump fence as it appeared from the path leading up to the bridge.

Notice how much clearer this second shot was. The fence was incomplete. Where it ended, a test became possible. I took two shots of Alcatraz. This one obscured by the new fence.
