    On verso of image: View of John Day Dam on the Columbia River looking upstream. The navigation lock at far left connects the Washington shore to the spillway section, and the 1,975-foot-long powerhouse connects the spillway section to the Oregon shore. The project's two fish ladders may be seen next to the navigation lock and on the Oregon shore. For many years this U.S. Corps of Engineers' project will be the largest and mightiest Columbia River dam, both in structural size and in power generation. It boasts the highest single-lift lock in the world. The project, which is scheduled for dedication on Spetember 28, is operated by the Portland U.S. Army Engineer District. less
