Lunchtime on a skyscraper in 2011: Flat caps swapped for hard hats and safety harnesses as builders recreate famous 1930s image
The famous original photo showed 11 workers in flat caps precariously perched on a steel beam 800ft (240m) above the ground.But
in 2011, these construction engineers in London swapped vests for
high-visibility jackets and safety harnesses as they ate out on a 755ft
(230m) tall building.The
photo - modelled on Charles C Ebbets's famous 1932 original, Lunch atop a
Skyscraper - was taken by Michael Crompton, 61, as he worked on Heron
Tower in central London last year. The 46-floor building is the third
tallest in the capital.
