Charming birds-eye map produced by the railroad to try to entice tourists to the Mojave, southern Nevada (this was before Las Vegas was "Las Vegas"), and the surrounding area, that was also served by the U.P. with Bryce and Zion shown in the upper right.
The reverse contains information on the Dam and area, including descriptions of the location, the hydroelectric capabilities, Boulder City, Las Vegas and recreational suggestions.
"Down in the rock-walled recesses of the Black Canyon of the Colorado River, an army of men and a vast array of titan machinery recently completed, two years ahead of schedule, the construction of the greatest engineering project of its kind the world has ever known - Boulder Dam."
