Brave Men Building the Empire State Building (1930)

Brave Men Building the Empire State Building (1930). It took 410 days to build, 3400 workers to help construct, 5 lost their lives and for 40 years it stood as the world's tallest building. It opened in May 1931 during the Great Depression. However, due to its poor location at the time, many of the offices stood empty and for 20years it was dubbed the Empty State Building.

In this Pathe News clip, men can be seen without safety ropes, precariously balancing on girders nearly 1000ft off the ground. Not a job for someone who suffers from vertigo!

The caption reads: "Final steelwork completed on *Bank of Manhattan*,
world's highest building." Not the Empire State Building. It was
completed in 1930.

This is mislabeled. It is not the Empire State Bldg. but instead the bank
of Manhattan Bldg. a forerunner to today's Chase ( Manhattan ) Bank. It is
not even in the same area as the Empire State which is in midtown. I love
when the video itself tells you what it is and still some rube mislabels it

Автор Tarn Sand (2 месяца)
I thought there would have been a greater death toll of workers. Obviously
skill played a huge role. I admire steel workers especially in this era.
They didn't even have hard hats.

Haha ok let's explain the joke: Those workers must have had lots of balls
(ie courage) He was making a joke about them having so much balls that the
building might have collaped under the weight of it.

My great-grandfather worked on this building. He was metalworker and he
sent a letter for my great-grandmother to home: "I found job, I am digging
now, but the company will need my hands for metalworks as well. I am happy,
the sallary is very good. The building will very big, will be inside a full
city." -After 1 year he wrote again from Building:"I think Europe 100 years
later can not build this high building like this." 2013, London, Shard

Автор bob lackey (1 год)
you are right. I could see the Woolworth building (1913) just up the
street. Plus the top gives it away. It could be the Cities Service building
on Pine Street (1932) which was the tallest building downtown until 1970
when Tower One topped out but I think you are correct. Bank of Manhattan/40
Wall St (1930). The Chrysler was going up at the same time & they slipped
the spire in an elevator shaft & suddenly hoisted it up after 40 Wall
topped out, tricking 40 Wall & making Chrysler the tallest.

All in a day's work back then: From the perspective of the rich, a lowly
worker's life wasn't worth the shit he shat... It still isn't, but these
days the lowly worker stand up for himself and pretends that it does, and
the rich play along so the worker won't rebel.

Автор raulsg188 (1 год)
yeah, I think I get your point, but when that posed to that photography, he
could slip his foot and fall to his death at any time, even if he´s not
afraid of heights. I think those men where not afraid of death either.
That´s my point.
