Inspired by "Lunch atop a Skyscraper" by Charles C. Ebbets

“Lunch atop a Skyscraper” (New York Construction Workers Lunching on a Crossbeam) is an iconic photograph taken atop the ironwork 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.

Comes packaged with Pin Museum branded backer card, and a protective polybag.
