Description: Caption:
This 1979 photograph depicted a bridge renovation worker, who at the time, was participating in the renovation of the Tobin Bridge in Boston, MA, which was found to be shedding paint flakes containing lead that was polluting the subjacent neighborhoods, and the Mystic River below. Abrasive blasting techniques were used to remove the hazardous leaded paint from parts of the bridge passing over neighborhoods, while a scraping technique was performed on that part of the structure that passed over the water.
