Wordless: Lunch on a Skyscraper

With the new year I thought it was time to begin a new Wordless theme….great online videos depicting historical themes.

I must give credit to this first video to my husband. He sent me a link to it in an email, and gee….it only took me several weeks to finally getting around to looking at it.

The photographs are the work of Otto Bettmann and Charles Ebbets….more about them later.


BTW…Once Upon a Time in America is one of my favorite movies.

Take a look at all the folks participating in Wordless Wednesday here.

Bark!! As I'm just a dog, history doesn't mean much to me... but Mom 'Bean likes it lots and will be here soon as I get off her computer. Come see my dog blog.

Found you via Wordless Wednesday and I'm subscribing. Our family loves history, even the little ones. (We just completed a 2-week trip to Gettysburg and Philadelphia, which is outlined on my blog.)

Love your site--glad to have found you!

Love it. My husband loves history, so we'll be stickin' around for a while too! Thanks for sharing!

Oh my. I'm not a huge fan of heights so things like that make me nervous just watching them. A similar, and fascinating, video I saw this past summer was on the building of the St. Louis Arch. Astounding! OSHA would faint.
