Several new photos are available on the OIRG photo site, under "documents". The first group will consist mostly of items of a historical nature, and when the film is converted to disc, there will be a number of photos that relate directly to our research.

See items dated 10/11/05.

RDII,

Great photos, the ones of the causeway being built show the start to a whole new era for OI.

Have you any idea what Dan is looking for in the one with the back hoe?

I think he's making those interesting patterns on the beach that was showing us pictures of a while back ;-)

Seriously, neat stuff RDII, it's exciting to see some new photos and information coming out into the open!

Tank:

Seriously, though..

The photo of Dan on the South Shore is the beginning of the excavations there in early 1966. Dan excavated a trench about 40 feet long, and at a depth of 83 feet, salt water broke through in a 2-3" stream from the east side. At 75 feet in this location, the old hand-hammered nail was found. During the night, the trench filled with 35 feet of water, which stopped work for the time during this period.

With regard to the causeway construction, it was completed just before Oct. 25, 1965, and was 650 feet in length. Shortly after, two days were spent completing the road through the island, and two additional weeks required two dozers, a loader and two trucks to make the road all-weather and to build up the causeway to protect it from fall tides. Dan's engineering skills were instrumental, and as you know, Earle was the gentleman that really made it happen.

Thanks. I especially liked the photos of the 1965 causeway construction. Ones I'd never seen before.
