"Laying the Breakwater Track"
Obreros mexicanos con el impetu en sus marros solidifican los rieles que daran paso a la maquinaria mas moderna de inicios del 1900. Por esta via férrea trasladaban hasta aquí los bloques de cantera desde Peñuela.

“Laying the Breakwater Track”
Mexican workers show their strength as their hammers solidify the rails that will move the most modern machinery of the early 1900s. By this breakwater railway they moved the quarried stone blocks for the pier here from Peñuela.
