Lunchtime atop a skyscraper, 1932.
Artist: Charles C. Ebbets
I’m not sure if this was staged or not but from what I’ve read, this picture was taken around the time of the Great Depression at a building in Rockefeller Center. Many people were willing to take up unsafe work because they were in dire need of money.
Anyways, this picture is pretty popular and I thought I’d share it in this album.
