After some mailings a little too fast in the tone, for which I apologize, I will try to recoup its regular tone. P.S. However I understand that it had great success among the female members in the list.

The photos in this presentation, are real. Some of them are historical photographs and were made by Charles Ebbets in the early 1930’s. Most of them depict daily scenes of the workers who participated in the construction of the skyscrapers between 1920 and 1935. As you will see, the safety measures were somewhat peculiar and the photos were done trying to play down that situation.

I title the first of the following photographs "Lunch atop a Skyscraper" or "Lunch at the top of a skyscraper" The author is Charles C. Ebbets. He is one of the more solid photographers of the world. The photographs were taken in New York, on September 29th 1932, and published in the New York Herald Tribune in the Sunday supplement of the Oct. 2nd of that year. It was taken on the 69 floor of the 70 that is the GE building in the Rockefeller Center.


This is Charles Ebbets while taking some of these photographs

And this one, is another mythical photo "Resting on the girder" of 1932

Many of these images comprise the Bettmann file, founded by Otto Bettmann in 1936. It contains a collection of 11 million photographs and includes some of the best historical images of the United States. At the present time the file belongs to the Corbis company, property of Bill Gates.














The music is "Deborah's Theme" by Ennio Morricone. The Theme is from the movie ”Once Upon a time in America" by Sergio Leone
