Harry Francel (1902-1996) worked as a welder on the Golden Gate Bridge, the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge and many others, particularly in and around California. These are historical photos from his personal scrapbooks. In most cases, the photographer is unknown. Corrections or additions to entries are welcome.
He was born Harry Franzel in Michigan. At least one misspelling of the family name resulted in his permanent adoption of "Francel." He traveled the United States extensively and worked in many locations on many projects, including the Detroit-Windsor tunnel.
