The Hoover Dam - Insulators

The best way to view the pictures is to use the links below.

After the nocturnal entertainment of Fremont Street, I will now start a series of pictures of the Hoover Dam and Lake Mead National Recreation Area, before I will return to Las Vegas and finish our 2017 travel with an impression of the Strip.
The Hoover Dam is a concrete arch-gravity dam in the Black Canyon of the Colorado River, on the border between the U.S. states of Nevada and Arizona.
It was constructed between 1931 and 1936 during the Great Depression and was dedicated on September 30, 1935, by President Franklin D. Roosevelt.

The position of the dam on the border of Nevada and Arizona makes it sometimes difficult to locate the picture in one state. Some pictures are taken in Nevada, but you can only see Arizona. Some pictures are taken in Arizona and you can only see Nevada and often you see a mixture of both states.

I will start this series with some details of the power plant construction.
Three pictures with the theme of “ceramic insulators” used by the conection with the “transmission towers”.

I add the dark frame to the picture to give the posts a screen format of 1920x1080 pixels
The idea is that, if you use the links in the text, you have a full screen image of the picture with the photo in the centre of a dark screen.
This works with the browsers and screens I use, but I’m not sure that everybody will have the same result.
