Description: Film could be evidence of a trip to document the Klamath river highway's poor condition to the Legislature in an attempt to secure funds for its widening. The film documents the trip from US 99 (Modern State Route 263) to Happy Camp where proponents; according to newspaper accounts at the time, including Senator Collier, claimed that local mining and lumber concerns were forced to purchase mining and lumber supplies in Oregon instead of California due to the condition of the road.
Individual at the beginning of the film pointing to the roadway sign could possibly be Senator Collier as well.
