-  Panoramic views of the Roosevelt Dam on the Salt River in Arizona: shots include rocky hill above dam, water rushing through portions of dam, and a car being driven on road across dam. Since a flag waves from back of car, film may have been shot at dedication ceremonies, March 18, 1911 at which TR delivered the principal address. The Roosevelt dam, a major irrigation project in the Salt River Valley near Phoenix, is largely a result of TR's land reclamation efforts when he was President.
