Summary/DescriptionPhotograph of construction on the dam at the outlet of Lake Tahoe. The photograph is identified by Edward B. Scott: In this early 1910's photograph, work progresses on the new Truckee River outlet dam, a cement structure that replaced the log and dirt von Schmidt lake level control. Mule, horse, steam and man power was being used to do the job. Due to contractual complications the modern dam remained unfinished until the fall of 1913 at which time arrangements were made for its completion. Cameraman Harold A. Parker faced northeast toward the Commons of Tahoe City from what was then marshland bordering the south side of the Truckee. Photographic print, 4.5 x 6.5 inches
