Corona Dump, Queens, NY
New York University Faculty Digital Archive. While the photo is undated, it presumably had to have been taken between 1920 (the year the first loco was built) and 1934 (the year the Corona Dump closed). The caption for the photo reads:

“Black and white photograph of the landfilling process. Waste was brought to the site by rail. Sanitation workers are posing.”
