Field Value
Title "B" Street at Grand Coulee
Description "B" Street in Grand Coulee was once synonymous for all that was licentious and ribald, but eventually law and order assumed the upper hand; gravel replaced the mud and muck in the street, sidewalks were installed and it was compelled to settle down to a state of respectable indecency. Damming the mightiest river in North America was no pink tea party, and the men who wrestled with the giant machines, swung high on the canyon walls, and walked the steel girders hundreds of feet above the... From 1933 to 1937 the population of Grand Coulee went from about half a dozen to 15,000 persons and the haphazard town grew around them to support this population.
