Lunch On The Skyscrapers
The photos in below are real. Some of them are historical photographs and were made by Charles Ebbets in the
early 1930s. Most of them depict daily scenes of the workers who participated in the construction of the skyscrapers between 1920 and 1935. As you will see, the safety measures were somewhat peculiar and the photos were done trying to play down that situation.
All the photographs were taken in New York on September 29, 1932 and published in the New York Herald Tribune in the Sunday supplement on October 2 of that year.
