Start of the waterwheel's construction, 1915

Dublin Core

Description

Workers start construction on the old mill dam to create a 3,000-kilowatt waterwheel pit for the Iowa City Electric Light and Power Company. The old flour mill can be seen in the background; *snow covers the project and the men wear coats and hats (Walch, p. 32).

*In Images of America, the description under this photograph (Lovetinsky et al., p. 61) states the image was taken at the beginning of the construction process in August of 1915. Due to the snow, it does not seem likely this image was taken in summer months.
