Empire State Building - Workers Attach Beam with a Crane

Working at dizzying heights, without much protection, two men attach an iron beam with a crane as they help to build the iron structure of the Empire State Building in 1931.

Lewis Wickes Hine took this photograph. It is one of at least 47 pictures he took of workers—and the famous New York City landmark itself—as the building came into existence.

Now part of "The Miriam and Ira D. Wallach Division of Art, Prints and Photographs: Photography Collection," at the New York Public Library, the photo is also part of the "Photographs of the Empire State Building under Construction" collection.
