One can only image what it was like in those days of construction on Shasta Dam in the late 30's and early 40's. 


Working on the Pit River Bridge under construction.  In the picture below, that is the old Pit River Bridge in the background. 

Not many of the early workers are still among us. From the construction years, "those men of steel" are like the WWII veterans, aging rapidly. Some are WWII or Korean veterans. The oldest worker that attended our Dam Worker's Reunion Luncheon will be 103 years old this month! Happy Birthday James Brock! One of the youngest, Don Cross turned 87 last month.
