Flashback Friday: 500 Car Caravan

Here’s a fun Flashback Friday for ya … it’s a black and white image of a caravan of over 500 automobiles on their way to visit Hoover Dam (then called the Boulder Canyon Project) in November, 1932. The passengers were possibly headed to view the diversion of the Colorado River.

It was amusing to realize how we occasionally see this same backup of cars today in right about the same spot … all it takes is a holiday weekend … so at least we’re consistent, LOL!
