This 1972 photo showing the [Gin Drinkers Bay] landfill site was still active, and with the TEXACO oil tank farm in full scale development.

The same area had faced drastic changes in the following 15 years.

The large building at the cemetery is the columbarium.

P.S. Probably the same source as this one.
