The 9th 1948 Rikers virtual tour close-up is to the immediate left of the 8th. It shows the power plant with its smoke stack, the water tower and a partial view of the rectangular storage house with its inner yard. Note "Rikers Island" letters facing the Bronx. SCROLL DOWN to see the ferry slip. The bridge connecting to Queens was two decades in the future. Note dark objects and white object at tip of ferry slip. Fog bell and boat fuel pumps?
