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?

British Pathe, that is not the Empire State Building--it is the Bank of
Manhattan Trust building (now Trump Tower) which was completed in 1930. You
can tell because the windows are two-five-two across unlike the Empire
which has windows straight across with no spaces in between, and it's not
the structure of the Empire. The tiers at the top are different. It was the
tallest building until the Empire was completed in 1931. It surpassed the
Chrysler building (which you can see in the background). Besides the fact
that it says it in the beginning, it is obvious that it is not the Empire.
You can check Google images and Wikipedia has photos and explanations. It
too had a plane fly into it just as the Empire had the same.

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

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.

(●̮̃•) I would wish have been there, look so exciting!!!

Автор hovnanian ( назад)
Didnt anyone died ??

Автор M Williams ( назад)
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 letzsee9 ( назад)
Wow.. I wonder how many people fell off the building

Автор redradiodog ( назад)
No way could I get up there and do that. I hope they all had their steel
toe shoes on!

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

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

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

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!

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

safety protections really frightened me away, they got guts.

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!

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.
