The Steeplejack, 1925

from 315.00

Daring tradesmen known as “steeplejacks” made their living scaling the tops of skyscrapers in need of repairs. Soaring 23 floors above the city, this worker paints a flagpole on a building just south of Times Square. Divided nearly in half by the flagpole, the images intersecting lines of wires and buildings illustrate the seemingly endless grid of Manhattan.
