Description

Fort Douglas was expanded during the New Deal, including several buildings and improvements to the water and street systems.  The CCC took over a warehouse (building 101) and added stables and quarters along both sides.  

In addition, the PWA funded the construction of large new barracks (building 100) and the WPA added several homes for senior officers (buildings 621-625 on the central parade grounds, along De Trobriand Street) and non-commissioned officers (buildings 658, 600, 664, 665, 666 on Connor Road), along with other improvements.

More photos taken by the WPA during the 1930s are in the archives of the library at the University of Utah, but have not yet been examined.
