Cocktail Construction Chart

The Forest Service Region 8 has an extensive set of drawings submitted by the Engineering Division titled “Historical Drawings.” The drawings typically consist of structures built by the Civilian Conservation Corps, water and sanitation plans, bridges, fire towers, and recreational areas. However, this drawing titled “Cocktail Construction” shows what happens when engineers have extra time on their hands.
