Lovely Las Vegas: Hoover Dam planning photo from August 1932

I found this in my inbox yesterday and what great timing. Apparently, the photo is from 24 August 1932 and what a gem of history. Hoover Dam is such an amazing piece of infrastructure of Southern Nevada and it is cool to see a photo from the time it was still just an idea in blueprint form. Definitely, Clark County has its share of wonderful historic spots, but Hoover Dam may be the King based on the purpose and the magnitude of this project. 

To whoever found this newspaper clipping and shared it online, thank you for bringing a piece of history alive.
