14. Lunch on a Beam
This traumatic scene is doubtless the most prominent of them all.
Probably by now, you have heard about the iconic “Lunch atop a Skyscraper” a photograph, we’ve seen at least billion times in every possible form, right?
Lunch atop a Skyscraper is a prominent photograph taken atop the steelwork of over 30 Rockefeller Plaza, during the time of the construction in Manhattan, New York City, United States.
Pictured above are 11 workers eating lunch and happily enjoying each other’s company more than 250 meters above the New York City streets. For those who worked years in a row in such exposed positions, this is part of the routine.
The Great Depression inspired some of the most memorable photographs of the 20th century by perfectly capturing the heartache. The picture above here might be a huge emotional charge right, there are some claims that the framework is not actual, and that all was staged to just promote the opening ceremony of the building. Like US, New-Yorkers from the 1930s were anxious to have their conscious put to the test by harrowing and spectacular photos.
Actually, we don’t know their names, nor the photographer who commemorate them, but these men launched 800 feet in Manhattan, New York City, United States.
