Object Name Transparency, Slide
Description From the slide series "Development of the Columbia Basin," Set #13. Eighth slide of series (color), "But to change all this desert to productive farms was the Coulee Dam built to raise the Columbia River 550 feet, which will eventually provide nearly two million kilowatts of power, and water enough to irrigate over a million acres of sagebrush wasteland." Image of a dam with hills in background. Four people (three probable Caucasian women and one probable Caucasian male) with their backs to the camera, are watching the dam. The people are standing on a rocky and grassy hill overlooking the dam.

"Grand Coulee Dam" written in ink on bottom half of slide frame. "KODACHROME / TRANSPARENCY / PROCESSED BY KODAK" on one side of slide.
