The Hoover Dam

Written by: George Chittenden : 30 Jul 2019

This brilliant photo was taken in 1935 and features Hoover Dam officials standing inside a forty-five-ton steel pipe over the dam itself. It was in 1935 when the pouring of the project’s concrete was completed, an incredible total of 3.25 million cubic yards. The huge project, originally known as ‘The Boulder Canyon Project’ was authorised by U.S Congress in 1928. The lake that the Hoover Dam created is one of the world’s largest man-made bodies of water, covering of 603 square kilometres.

Incredibly the construction company completed the immense project more than two years ahead of schedule and handed it over to the federal government on March 1st, 1936. Its construction was the result of a massive effort involving thousands of workers and cost over one-hundred lives.
