Canals - Navajo Indian Irrigation Project, New Mexico Photograph Collection
Scope and Content
In addition, most views include men at work in construction contexts. Represented are earthmoving and heavy equipment, working with concrete by assembling forms and placing concrete, and metal workers bending and welding the reinforcing steel and steel irrigation pipe liners. In a few instances there are close up or sequential views of aspects of the construction.
The captions consistently include photograph or project number, descriptive text, construction specifications, contractor, photograph date and photographer’s name. The photographs are ordered chronologically and by photograph number. The information "Canals -- Navajo Indian Irrigation Project, New Mexico" and "Specs No. DC-6460, Universal Constructors, Inc. Contractor" appears on almost all of the prints. The photographs are by Bureau of Reclamation photographers, whose names are recorded.
