Boulder City and Hoover Dam

Everyone needed a job during the great depression so when the dam was commissioned to be built, everyone headed to Boulder City.  It became known as Tent City.  People would come with very little possessions hoping to find work.

This is also where I lost my gps and some nice people turned it in.

If you wanted a job, here are a list of jobs and what you would make.
This was in Boulder City Hotel and Museum. It describes how the dam was built.
