Yesterday's photo showed a view of the spillway in April 1962, today's shot pre-dates that and shows the downstream side of the spillway.
Anyone who has been below the spillway has probably wondered what the bottom of the channel looks like. Some may have heard the legend of divers exploring the extreme depths of the channel and seeing catfish large enough to swallow a man.
As this photo shows, the bottom is a pretty boring, rock covered surface. As for the catfish....well don't believe that one either.
