Is this picture real at all? During the building of a civilization, I mean, how can they do that? If I was their position, I think I would fall easily.

My god...

edit -

I think it's a World Trade Center in a process of being built.


Yes it's real.

I know, is ancient photo, wouldn't that be?

Wasn't sure where to post it, anyway.

Not sure but i think it was the Empire State or RCA building
pic by perhaps Fred Stein maybe Charles Ebbets or or that era.
Like that? try googling "dogmen at work" they were the guys that rode the girders as they were lifted into place from the ground, swinging in the wind, spinning and controlling the girder with their weight, extreme sport 1930's style for a coupla bucks a week, awesome. Thats why the invented trade unions so the safety gear is mandatory now, as well as payments to widows!

A lot of people died doing work like this.

People still die from heights work; and as you know also ground work.

[Edit: Awesome picture!

Ah, thanks makeitso.

Rockefeller Center? Damn, I didn't know that one existed.

In this pic, it's like those workers are so cool with it and have no problem doing it. The advanced humans at its finest.

The photo is called "Lunch Atop a Skyscraper" is an actual photograph taken by Charles C. Ebbets during the construction of the GE Building at Rockefeller Center in 1932. Nothing staged about the photo at all. Cool, but scary.

You sure wouldn't catch me alive, or dead for that matter, up there on that steel. I can't believe people are that athletic.

I have to hand it to them though; they know how to live large, and on the edge!!
