These photos are from the archives showing the construction of
NAS Alameda.  Depicted here are some of the early buildings, construction of the break wall, and filling in the lagoons.  During construction of NAS Alameda, a lot of dredging was done and so nearly half of the base is landfill from the estuary.  As a result, “Bones” were put into the soil which consisted of concrete runners that hold the soil and sand together over time.
