Bridges. Highway bridge across an arm of Norris Lake which has been developed by the TVA (Tennessee Valley Authority), with local cooperation, for recreational uses. Note that, as on all TVA bridges where view is of importance, the parapet consists of a solid portion and an open rail to permit good view

Bridges. Highway bridge near Soddy, Tennessee, where, in cooperation with work relief agencies and the governing body of the county, TVA (Tennessee Valley Authority) developed an arm of Chickamauga Lake for recreational uses

Norris Dam and powerhouse. Night view of Norris Dam with floodlighting. The more spectacular dams of the TVA (Tennessee Valley Authority) are equipped to be floodlit at night and are popular excursion points. Pinpoint lights along top of dam are small lenses in back of the handrail bracket road lighting fixtures. Wet spots on dam are the result of small shrinkage cracks during initial years which later sealed themselves by the sediment contained in the water

General planning. In bringing down its overall planning program to actual cases, the Authority works in intimate contact with local political institutions, and county, city, and state planning agencies, most of which owe their existence to TVA (Tennessee Valley Authority) instigation. Models, designs, surveys, drafts of ordinances and legislation are developed by TVA technicians to assist in the physical replanning of the valley

Chickamauga Dam and powerhouse. One of the headquarters buildings of farmers' cooperatives which distribute TVA (Tennessee Valley Authority) power. With comfortable lounges, meeting rooms, and up-to-snuff shops, garages and offices, such buildings become centers of interest in the small towns in which they are located (quoted from previously written caption). Headquarters building of the rural power distribution cooperative at Shelbyville, Tennessee (see general comments under K 2382). In the design of these structures a certain degree of uniformity is observed to express the fact that they are parts of a nationwide system. The symbol REA stands for Rural Electrification Administration which by engineering, financing, and general guidance promotes rural electrical cooperatives throughout the United States and its territories. Each design is individually developed, however, from the special requirements of the organization and with attention to location and site characteristics

Drinking fountains are provided at engineering projects and recreational parks for visitors' convenience. This one was donated by the labor unions associated in the Tennessee Valley Workers' Council as a memorial to a labor relations official of the Authority after his death. The bronze dedication placque carries the favorite stanza of the deceased which reads as follows: "Mourn not the dead who in the cool earth lie, Dust unto dust, The calm sweet earth that mothers all who die, As all men must, But rather mourn the apathetic throng, The cowed and the meek, Who know the world's great anguish and its wrong, And dare not speak."

One of the groups of tourists' cabins at Cove Lake State Park. The general appearance of the structures, as others built by the TVA (Tennessee Valley Authority), is more or less traditional because it was thought that too great a deviation in this remote area would prevent ready popular acceptance of the main principles of the demonstration

Refreshments concession inside the Norris visitors' building (compare with notes on K 1867). In the design of such facilities the TVA (Tennessee Valley Authority) wanted to demonstrate simple, clean, efficient arrangements which at the time were not known or appreciated in the valley

Miscellaneous design. In the course of its construction programs, the TVA (Tennessee Valley Authority) has occasion to design and construct many different types of buildings, always with an earnest effort to set examples which are within the ability of local residents or organizations to follow. This school at Fontana, erected for the children of TVA employees, is operated in collaboration with the North Carolina State Department of Education and a large portion of it will remain in permanent use,

General planning. The town of Guntersville, Alabama, one of many whose entire future has been reoriented due to the program of the Authority. Formerly a sleepy crossroads in a depressed cotton raising area, it became a center of navigation and commerce due to the construction of the reservoir. It's current and anticipated rapid development will be guided by newly established planning and zoning commissions, city plans and ordinances, with the assistance of the Authority's technicians

General planning. A graphic map used in conjunction with the river transport development program of the Authority

Wheeler dam and powerhouse. Visitors' reception room in Wheeler control building. Windows on three sides and overlook terrace adjoining offer complete view of plant and surroundings. Fourth wall used for description of TVA (Tennessee Valley Authority) program. Floor: gray-brown terrazo, divided into large squares by white metal strips. Wainscot, window sills, trim around doorway and curb at footlights brownish-red precast terrazo. Walls burlap covered, painted subdued tan. Windows aluminum. Ceiling and upper part of walls, plaster painted warm gray with warm off-white reflecting circles and cove across end (ceiling acoustic plaster). Lighting indirect. Lights in cove across end of room also throw downward, directed by lenses toward wall display and shielded by aluminum louvers. Behind curb inclined contol lens footlights and louver (aluminum) shielding air exhaust. Supply through ceiling grilles which border ceiling on two sides. Deep trim around doorway intended as shield while passing footlights. Display in gray, black and tan, keyed with general color scheme. Guard's desk of natural oak and ebomized birch, with raised ledge for visitor's registration

This interesting combination of gauge house and navigation lightpole with service ladders and handrails developed into decorative features is typical of TVA (Tennessee Valley Authority) navigation projects all up and down the river

Agriculture being still the predominant occupation in the Valley, the TVA's (Tennessee Valley Authority) programs included a demonstration of good agricultural practices. The barn shown here was built in the course of such programs and served the double purpose of demonstration and the provision of pasteurized milk for construction employees

Recreational structures. Big Ridge Lake. Diving tower, beach and bath house may be seen in the background. This forty-five acre body of water has proved an attractive recreation spot for thousands of visitors since it was first opened to the public in May 1934. Encircled by the 3,500 acres of wooded hills in Big Ridge Park, the resort is provided with a boathouse, bath house, a public lodge, nineteen modern vacation cabins and a beach with a specially constructed pool for children. Located on the eastern boundary of Norris reservoir about twenty-five miles northeast of Knoxville, Tennessee, the lake was formed by constuction of a small dam across one of the arms of the reservoir. This recreation area and the 3,800 acre Noris Park near Norris Dam were developed by the National Park Service and the CCC (Civilian Conservation Corps) in cooperation with the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA). This is one of many comparable parks on TVA reservoirs, most of which are in use and greatly enjoyed by tourists as well as residents of the surrounding area who previously had few, if any, outdoor opportunites for ourtdoor sport and recreation. The completion of other recreational parks has been prevented by the war
