Description

A work crew using the pot pouring method of applying mastic to a street.

The writing on the slide tells us that this view is of 416 Broadway in Brooklyn, New York.  The date is June 2, 1916. 

Several businesses are in view.  The one with the clearest signage is for the William Aug. Dommer shop where they sold medical equipment such as trusses.
