Aerial view of the Hoover Dam construction site, looking downstream on the Colorado River in Black Canyon. Construction on the intake towers on both sides of the dam face is shown. The top of the dam face is covered with concrete pouring forms. Buckets of concrete can be seen on the railroard bench on the canyon wall in the lower right. Temporary stairs attached to the canyon wall in the background lead up to a concrete mixing plant in the mountains. A temporary bridge crosses the river in the foreground.
