Classic construction image – imagine that nowadays!

As we looked out at today’s bright blue sky, we thought of that classic image of the construction workers having their lunch on a girder while building the GE Centre in Manhattan. No doubt the view of the sky was even more stunning up there. But it’s the view of the ground that would make our knees tremble….!

Thankfully no-one would even consider that acceptable practice these days which makes that image even more iconic, but thankfully very much of its time!
