6 thoughts on “Bull Run Dam 1, 1928

  1. Since Bull Run Dam Number 1 was completed in 1928 it would seem that either the location is wrong or the date is wrong.

  2. Other related photos of Bull Run Dam 1 above the comments are from 1928, and Oregon Historical Society gives 1929 as the completion year of Dam 1.

  3. The worker with on the left, striking the great side pose has the right idea, coveralls, and high topped boots – he looks more like a railway worker to me though. These fellows worked very hard, they must have been exhausted at the end of the day. Unfortunately, as we know, their work conditions were only to get worse in the years that followed.
