Last night I was doing some quick research for our website and I came across a great photo of the Shasta Dam that I thought you all would enjoy. This was taken in 1942 while they were building the dam.
The photo is from the Library of Congress Prints and Photographs Division. Shasta dam is 602 ft high and 3,460 ft long, with a base width or thickness of 543 ft. and when completed, was one of the great civil engineering feats of the world.
You can see this photo and others of the Redding area on our Photos page. Parsons Realty Photos
