I came across this 1911 photo while looking through the bid package for a project at a Sierra lake.

I don't know what the photo was doing in a bid package but I sure do miss seeing lettering like that.  I believe it is a lost art.

It's a dam repair/improvement project, and the bid package includes 145 photos showing site conditions in 1911 when the last improvements were made, presumably to give the contractor a good idea of what they're going to be up against.
