Description Two men survey a construction site with their backs facing the camera. The site is a pit filled with rubble and debris. The building adjacent to the pit appears to be of a religious nature, either a synagogue or a church, and is likely the same synagogue captured in other photos in this collection. The photo also captures very heavily damaged buildings in the background as well as some construction equipment.
