Hi all, got a request if I may. :)

Fairly new to this place, spent most of my time browsing the picture forum but I didn't see any requests there so I thought I'd stick it in here.

Anyway, I've seen a few photos from years ago of construction workers on skyscrapers like the one below, and they just fascinate me.

I've been wondering if there's any galleries of photos like this knocking around anywhere?

Cheers. :)

The name of this photographer is Lewis Hine. I think that he has photographed the construction of the Empire State Building - an possibly others - and you can find some of his photos at this (http://images.google.com/images?svnum=10&hl=en&lr=&client=safari&rls=en&q=Empire+State+building+AND+Lewis++Hine&btnG=Search) URL.
