Pool Aerial View, Balmorhea State Park, January 9, 1936

This view was taken from atop the windmill platform located in the yard of a ranch house across the road from the San Solomon Springs pool. The CCC enrollees who trained as masons are placing hand-cut flat stone roof tile on the building in the foreground; just below the springs seep and bubble. Behind the pool outline is the camp compound which included offices, barracks, dining hall, library and study areas, recreation hall, mess hall, maintenance and metal fabrication areas, and latrines. The Toyahvale railroad track and depot are visible behind the camp; and to the right, the road to Fort Davis stretches into the distance.
