Can someone identify this mystery unique western dam (on the left)?
The cover of the May 8, 1920 Scientific American

has a wonderful illustration of an oddball dam. As the artist, Howard V. Brown was best known for his science fiction paintings, I might have dismissed this as a made-up illustration as I have never seen this dam before in books. However, the article contains a photograph of this dam but does not identify it. It identifies the dam on the right but not the one in question. Nowhere in the magazine is there any identification of this oddball concrete dam.
Does anybody where or what this dam is called?
