  • Short Summary

    Construction of a massive dam in the United States.

  • Description

    Panning shot of the biggest dam in California.

    Various shots of parts of the dam. Shot showing what looks like a cable car moving across the dam. Closer shot showing two men hanging on to a pulley system which is presumably transporting them across the dam - looks scary! M/S of two men working on construction of the dam. Looks like they are making concrete. "The best way to view the work is by air-line - so here goes." Moving overhead shots of the dam.

    Was an item in Pathe Pictorial issue number 699.

    Note: very bad perf damage on this story.

    Safety print only.
