Wallpaper - Lunch atop a skyscraper

A black and white outlook of Lego City over lunch

This wallpaper is actually a reproduction from the very famous black-and-white photograph taken by Charles C.Ebbet in 1932. The photograph was taken during the last stages of construction by Ebbet on the 69th floor, it shows 11 men eating lunch, seated on a girder with their feet dangling several hundreds of feet above the New York City Streets. Another photograph taken by Ebbets the same day, Men Asleep on a Girder, shows the same workers napping on the beam.

I applaud their courage, sitting up there without safety belts or anything


  1. I have this photo, as a poster, on the wall right next to me, this made me smile :D
