2nd Assignment

I like this photo of the constrution workers back in 1932, because it gives the viewer somewhat of an idea of what contruction was like back then. Also, I like how the construction workers in the photo are just casually eating their lunch even though they are on what is now the 69th floor of a new york building.

I also like the photographer of this photo, Charles C. Ebbets. The pictures he took are mainly of the construction workers working on a new york building, but all of them show the dangers of being a construction worker back in 1932 and how the workers just go about there day as if they where only one foot off the ground.
