So first stop was the Hoover Dam. Yep – it’s impressive. 100s died to build it.One side of it is Nevada, the other side is Arizona and thus one hour into the future, as Arizona is on US Central time.  One thing that really struck me was how Art Deco it was. All the signs and furnishings are done in that very 1920-1930s style font that you find in places like the Empire State Building.

  1. If I’m not mistaken Hoover Dam was one of the monumental projects funded by the TVA Tennessee Valley Authority, in the 20s to help get people back to work following the Depression. Think ‘dust bowl’ and Grapes of Wrath….fantastic speech by Henry Fonda’s character in the movie. XxGinny
