Photograph of President Franklin D. Roosevelt sitting in a car at the Bonneville Dam construction site on August 3, 1934. The president arrived in Portland that day, then traveled to the dam site, where he gave a speech about the project. A cropped version of this photograph was one of nine that were published on Page 4 of the Oregon Journal on August 4, 1934, under the headline “President Roosevelt Visits One of Administration’s Big Projects.” This photograph had the following caption: “The photographer caught the president, in his car, as he was reading one of many messages received during his visit.” The images were part of a two-page photo spread included in the newspaper’s coverage of Roosevelt’s visit.
