Unusual view of the Colorado River. Likely, the location of the Hoover Dam, which borders the States of Nevada and Arizona. Drawn by Frederick W von Egglofstein for the 1857-1858 expedition of the Colorado River led by Joseph Christmas Ives. According to Rumsey, the findings were published in the Senate issued report from 1861 titled "Report Upon the Colorado River". A custom made stern wheel steamboat used for the expedition can be seen depicted on the river. Minor stains to margins.
