Chicago workers remake the iconic ‟lunch atop the skyscraper” photo from 1932

Lunch atop a Skyscraper (New York Construction Workers Lunching on a Crossbeam) is a photograph taken atop the steelwork of 30 Rockefeller Plaza, during the construction of the Rockefeller Center, in Manhattan, New York City, United States.

The photograph depicts 11 men eating lunch, seated on a girder with their feet dangling 840 feet (260 meters) above the New York City streets. The photograph was taken on September 20, 1932, on the 69th floor of the RCA Building during the last months of construction. According to archivists, the photograph was in fact prearranged. Although the photograph shows real ironworkers, it is believed that the moment was staged by Rockefeller Center to promote its new skyscraper. Other photographs taken on the same day show some of the workers throwing a football and pretending to sleep on the girder. The photo appeared in the Sunday photo supplement of the New York Herald Tribune on October 2, 1932.

This Instagram Account Collects Funny And Strange Things Spotted On Public Transport

This page is the best-kept secret of the entire ‘Humans of’ series. Heck, maybe of the entire internet. Humans of Trolleybuses (Humans of Trūlai) offers a glimpse into the funny side of Lithuanian public transport, and it’s really colorful, too. Extravagant clothing, questionable luggage, they feature it all.

The creator of the page, Rokas Stasevičius, said he started it after one memorable encounter. Rokas was taking a trolleybus when one of the passengers, a drunk, was smoking inside of it, singing chanson songs and, after being kicked out of the vehicle, waved Rokas goodbye with a smile on his face. This pretty much sums up what content to expect from Humans of Trolleybuses.
