This is Cha les C. Ebbets who took the famous photograph “Lunch atop a Skyscraper” in 1932. The photograph was taken from the 69th floor on the construction of RCA building and was marked as “photographer unknown”. His picture it still sells in framed prints to this day.
Yes, a photographer will do anything to take a photo.

Most importantly: what happened to the poor man?
Are the three guys laughing at him?!?
