Description: Backside view of the First Lake Dam in 1930. We see, on the right, the caretaker's cabin. He lived there year-round. Here, the water level was regulated for the reservoir for the Second Falls Electric Power Generating Station. The dam was owned by the Green River Lumber Ltd. until 1938 when Fraser bought it.
