About this collection

This collection contains over 1400 photographic prints documenting the construction of the Lower Baker River Dam at Concrete, Washington. The photographs were taken by George P. Jessup, superintendent of the project. The images document almost daily the progress of the construction from August, 1924 and ending in December, 1925. They feature various views of the railroads, the river and rock walls around the dam, and the dam itself as well as some of the workers.
