Payday 1934

The Fort Peck Dam provided jobs for many who went without. They flooded the area looking for any prospect of work. While the working conditions were very different from what is required today, any hope for money brought a smile and a sense of hope. This photo was taken April 7, 1934, of workers with the first paychecks for their hard work.
