One is brought gasping to the surface with these amazing pictures of real blokes doing proper man stuff.
Taken during the construction of the Empire State Building in 1931 by Lewis Wickes Hine and recently made available by the New York Public Library, they document the stomach churning lives of the men who created one of the most iconic buildings in history.
Operating at heights that would give Spiderman vertigo to complete what at the time would become the tallest building in the world. Finished 3 months before schedule and below budget, something unheard of in today’s era of cowboys and politics, the skyscraper stands at 1250ft with102 floors. Which definitely puts our plug rewiring skills to shame.
