Description: This photograph was taken from above street level from the post office located at the NW corner of 6th Street and 3rd Avenue, looking toward the port. At a four-way intersection with a stoplight, two policemen direct traffic. Some refinery facilities and the grain elevator are visible in the distance and clouds of dark smoke flow from left to right. Approximately 20 cars are visible, driving along the streets or parked along the roadsides. Two women walk down a street. Three men stand at a corner facing toward the port. An official stands with one policeman watching traffic go by. Diagonally across the interstection are several empty lots, but a number of houses, one large industrial building and a store are visible in the distance. The store, located on the corner of the next street, has signage on it that reads "Cookies. Grocery & Market, CocaCola". Two portable signs are on short poles at entrance of street headed to port area on the left. The legible sign on the right reads "One way, do not enter."
