This fine Sawyers card shows Timberline Lodge when it was young. I scheduled this for today's post a while ago, only to learn later that September 28 is the anniversary of the dedication of Timberline Lodge. President Franklin Roosevelt dedicated the lodge as well as Bonneville Dam during his visit on September 28, 1937.
a great project and wonderful gift to future generations. there was a lot of good thinking & planning that went into the federal program that got this and MANY other projects built.

A treasure. Wish we weren't 20,000 billion in debt so we could afford more treasures and needed infrastructure.

Buzz, this morning I looked at this photo and then googled FDR's two speeches. One for Timberline and one for Bonneville.
I read point #21 in the Bonneville speech and decided it would be best if I did not make any comments.
But...it is history.
