Sep 26, 1948 – Whitehurst Freeway Construction photos

View is East at the end of Water St, looking at the tail end of the Whitehurst Fwy. construction. On the left is the King Coal Co.

J. Shriver shared a handful of other really neat photos he has in his collection showing construction of the Whitehurst Freeway back in 1948. The photographer was Charles Murphy. The photos are rich with detail including the King Coal Co. as well as the Rosslyn Steel & Cement silos in the background. Check the photos out here.
