Building of the NY Empire State Building (1929 - 1931)

These are unbelievable pics taken during the building of the NY Empire State Building 1929 - 1931. Wow, yet can't build something "simple" nowadays

Not a hard hat or safety harness anywhere - No such thing as OSHA back then! Amazingly, it is believed only 5 people died during the construction and one of them was hit by a truck....
