In response to Reply # 1



Considering the lack of safety equipment as shown from the photos this is amazing as well..
Official records state that only five workers were killed during the construction of the empire state building: one worker was struck by a truck; a second fell down an elevator shaft; a third was hit by a hoist; a fourth was in a blast area; and a fifth fell off a scaffold.

We don't need no stinking safety harness! I like the one out there as well showing a few sitting on a suspended girder while eating lunch.

Not a single hard hat either! And no steel-toed boots.

Hi Jon,

Thanks for the link.

Back then, when building bridges and skyscrapers it was expected that one worker would die for every 1 million dollars spent on the project.

Best Regards,
Marty

In # 18 it's obvious the photographer had dust on his sensor! Sloppy, sloppy, sloppy!

Wow. Thanks for sharing the link. Definitely not an occupation for a person with the least bit of acrophobia.

If they had to rely on me, the King of Acrophobics, to build the building, they would still be building today. I could have never taken those photos either. The fact that I couldn't do any of it makes it all the more amazing to me.

An amazing tribute to the construction workers (and photographers) who built these iconic structures and recorded how they did it.

Clyde,

Your comment made me chuckle since I am also extremely acrophobic. I get light headed just looking at people walk on high ledges. If I were tasked with building a high rise I would build one HUGE single story structure, LOL!

I'm not that bad, but I'd be queasy on those open-air beams. Then there are people like Joe McNally who some years ago shimmied out onto a gargoyle that sticks out from the Chrysler building in NYC and just last month went to the top of the Burj Khalif. Me? I'd shoot it from the base and then press Upright in Lightroom 5…

Now that's a project I could do the photography for.

The caption says "built in a little more than a year". I think it would take quite a bit longer today.
