Construction of the New Dam


Construction of the New Dam


In this image, the New Dam in being created in front of the Old Dam. There are men standing on top of the New Dam, some working, some talking amongst themselves. The Connecticut River can be seen running from the Old Dam and underneath the New Dam. Scattered around the ground are barrels and blocks of stone.
