Workers Contribute to the Early Construction Stages of the Hoover Dam Ca. 1933Unknown - 1933

The construction of the Boulder Dam, which would eventually be renamed the Hoover Dam after President Herbert Hoover, began in 1931. The dam promised to end the yearly cycle of floods along the banks of the Colorado River and to provide a source of hydroelectric power for Nevada, Arizona, and California.
