1920's Poignant image of a worker defying death to help build New York City higher and higher. Taken at the height of the "roaring twenties" the image is captivating as there are no nets or safety devices, just a man and a torch, doing what needed to be done. Crystal clear and bold, this is an original from Underwood and Underwood, stamped on the back with a full paper caption as well.
