About this title


Lewis W. Hine's famous photographs, documenting the construction of what was then the world's tallest building, pay tribute to human vision, endeavor, and courage.

From the Publisher:

Thousands of construction workers, electricians, and other technicians risked their lives to ensure that the skyscraper rose to its now legendary height. Hine's genius lay in observing these men at work, and creating a photo-journalistic record of their daring and perserverence. Hine's photos also give us a surprising glimpse into blue collar America in the 1930's when jobs were scarce and morale was at rock bottom. The faces of the men swinging from cables, dangling from beams, and relaxing on the Empire State's unfinished steel peaks convey anything but despair.
