Language of Materials
The Barker Dam collection contains both a photographic scrapbook of the building of the dam from 1907-1911 and negatives of the resurfacing of the dam from 1946-1947. The dam is located in southwest corner of Boulder County, and east of Nederland, CO. The completion of the dam created Barker Reservoir.
The negatives were labeled with a alpha numeric file system. We kept that numbering system and filed accordingly.
