Construction Workers

Welcome to Construction Workers week here at OPOD. We are going to be looking at pictures from back in the day when people actually built things. Today's picture is from 1940, and it shows two construction workers working on Shasta Dam in California. I love the old aluminum style hard hats.


  1. Greetings from Finland!
    Thanks for you from your fine photos!
    It is always great joy to see a new picture every day!

  2. The hard hats look just like the ones I wore when I worked summers for the Forest Service in the early 60's. Nice pictures, as always.

  3. I bet the dark one in the picture is much hotter than the silver one. Thankfully, we now have plastic ones in white that have web strapping in them to reduce injury better.

  4. Great photo ....looking forward to seeing more as the week goes on with interest.

    All the best Jan
