View of football field and bleachers from railroad embankment. In the foreground is rubble against a wooden fence. In the middle of the football field a number of men are working with shovels. A wooden fence on the far side separates it from houses in the neighborhood. Numerous piles of lumber are all along the foot of the fence in the field and behind the bleachers, and a scoreboard and ladder are against the fence. Text at foot of photograph reads, "Park Hill Place 9+69 Looking North from Line."
