Shinnecock Inlet. March 10, 1956. March 10, 1956. The east and west jetties have been completed, and now the channel is restricted to a N-S direction. A sand spit still protrudes from the west beach into the inlet. The updrift fillet (on the east (right) side has begun to fill with sand. Note that the west beach is straight because the area directly west of the west jetty had not yet begun to erode. The dune that parallels the road is vegetated almost to the edge of the inlet. In the future, this area would suffer chronic erosion. (Photograph by Lockwood, Kessler & Bartlett.)
