Late 1950s Aerial Tour of Page Arizona

I have a couple really cool aerial shots to share with you in this video, along with a “Then and Now” comparison.

Early 60s Aerial Tour of Page Arizona

The detail on some of these early aerial photos of Page and Glen Canyon Dam are amazing. In this one, I give you an aerial tour of the town of Page as it appeared in the early 1960s.

Glen Canyon Dam Concrete Batch Plant

With the social distancing that we’re doing, I thought I would take advantage of the down time and make a few videos for Mike’s Dam Photo Journal. The concrete batch plant at the Glen Canyon Dam was something I always wanted to go inside of, but never had an opportunity. Here’s a few narrated images of it for your visual enjoyment.

1958 Construction of Glen Canyon Dam

Here’s an 8mm YouTube home movie I came across with some excellent shots of the construction of Glen Canyon Dam, Glen Canyon Bridge, and Page Arizona from the late 1950s. This video captures some great moments of that time. Enjoy!

Video: Glen Canyon Dam Construction

I came across this video showing some good footage of the Glen Canyon Dam construction as well as some great shots of early Page Arizona. Some of the narration gets a little cheesy but the footage is amazing. You may even recognize some of the faces. I was surprised to see Chet Huntley narrating it. After the first minute and half to two minutes in, it picks up and gets good. The total length is only 27 minutes.

Enjoy!

Videos: Glen Canyon Dam Construction

These are five videos by Gary Ladd on the construction of Glen Canyon Dam. There are some really good shots and info in these. When you watch them on YouTube, one video goes right into the next. I’m not sure if that will happen here too, so I’m putting all five parts in this single post. These are also on my Videos page in the link in the sidebar.

Operation Glen Canyon

This is a pretty cool  28 minute video documentary on the first four years of construction of Glen Canyon Bridge and Dam. Thank you Donna for posting this link on our Facebook page!

Enjoy!
