Striking birds eye view of the area around the proposed Hoover Dam.

This is the second edition of the view, with significant revisions. The high elevation view shows Hoover Dam and the surrounding region to include parts of California, Nevada, Utah and Arizona. The large lake behind Hoover Dam is now named (Lake Mead), unlike the earlier edition. Boulder City is shown, with a now significantly larger Las Vegas shown. The Union Pacific Railroad goes to Salt Lake City, on the far horizon, with side tracks to Cedar Breaks, Zion and Bryce National Parks and the north rim of the Grand Canyon with the lodge identified.

Printed information and illustration on the verso:

The map was drawn by Gerald A. Eddy (1890-1967) of Los Angeles.
