#Industrial Heritage – Latvia: The construction of the Kegums Hydro Power Plant and the rise in living standards

Our December featured document is a throwback to our #IndustrialHeritage exhibition: the construction of Kegums Hydro Power Plant was one of the most important events in Latvia in the 1936-1939 period. It was positively welcomed by the entire society, which recognised it as an opportunity for rapid economic growth, electrification of the Latvian territory, and general improvement of the living standards. Find the history of the plant and the beautiful photographs that document its construction on Archives Portal Europe
