Brave Men Building the Trump Tower (1930)

Brave Men Building the Bank of Manhattan Trust building (now Trump Tower) which was completed in 1930.

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!

Why would Trump come into play, when Trump himself wasn't even born when
this future acquisition was being built? Bank of Manhattan - yes. Who
cares who bought the property later?

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
building (just) 308 m. (Salute from Hungary)

You do realize you're ranting and raving like an insane lunatic (on youtube
of all places) to some random person. Right?

Автор losepoundsandinches ( назад)
The odd thing is, it's well-documented that every one of them was deathly
afraid of spiders.

Автор CSSMarc ( назад)
absolutely insane :D

Автор Mrmad Barney ( назад)
Not a hope in hell I'd try and do that

Автор SexualHarrassmentPanda ( назад)
Their balls are made of more steel than the actual building.

The reason they don't fall is because in 1930 gravity hadn't been invented

Whytebyjet65 you're wrong... i was airborne in the army. I'm not afraid of
heights, best believe I'd have to have my best set of balls on; my brave
ball sac, to get on up there.

It's surprising the building could support the weight of there balls.

Автор Mrderpyx ( назад)
I would piss my pants if I was up there

Автор MsSavannaK ( назад)
well damn without those men that building wouldn't be there today.

Автор Chunkylewinsky17 ( назад)
Me either!! And I guess only five people died in the making of the empire
state. You see pictures and watch things like this, you think it would be
more. Only one of those deaths were from falling!

Автор Da Pikle Samurai ( назад)
there's a fine line between being scared and out of your mind, this is
illogical beyond belief

Автор shug mccormack ( назад)
helmets n safety gear had to be brought in the wealthy didnt give a shit
about our health back then ..they still dont . .but fear of compensation
soon got them thinking about our health [and their wealth] ... health n
safety on sites has reduced the death rate massively

I have seen many pictures of construcing skyscarpers in the NY city
circa1930s or earlier. Those brave skyboys working without even basic
safety protections really frightened me away, they got guts.

big balls

Автор GrahamChapman ( назад)
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.

The man at 0.46 is pulling is balls up they are so big!

Автор bob lackey ( назад)
This is great footage. But it's not the Empire State building. It's the
Bank of Manhattan which was completed in 1930 & was the tallest in the
world until the Chrysler topped out & the next year the Empire State. Today
it's called "The Trump Building". The shape of the dome on top & seeing the
nearby Woolworth building which this building topped as world's tallest
gives it away.

Автор dino cali ( назад)
I am so fucking scared by watching this.

Автор John Boy ( назад)
omg these days you wont even catch a builder without his helmet on, health
and safety at work has fucked us all.

it. deal with the changes around you. Stop living in the past. Bet your
some right wing conservative..or a hick. typical. have a good day

Автор MrMerlinVII ( назад)
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.
