You were there? You know someone who was there? How else could you be sure? In my opinion, the photo is faked, and here's why:. First, the halo around all the men indicates the men and the beam were 'burned in' from another negative.
In a huge understatement, the concrete structures that will anchor a new section of the 15 Freeway bridge over the Santa Ana River in Norco are big. A total of 55 girders are to be set in place over the next 10 to 12 weeks, Riverside County Transportation Commission officials say. They will support the new toll lanes being built in the center of the freeway at the river. The first such girder was installed at 4 a. Friday, Aug.
The most famous photograph of Irish America, 11 men having lunch sitting on a girder feet high above New York, will be recreated in Galwaythis weekend. The Galway Advertiser reports that two of the men have been identified as Galway natives. Most of the men have now been identified by family members. The man sitting fourth from the right is Francis Michael Rafferty and to his right is his lifelong best friend, Stretch Donahue.
The photograph depicts 11 men eating lunch, seated on a girder with their feet dangling hundreds of feet above the New York City streets. Ebbets took the photo on September 29, , and it appeared in the New York Herald Tribune in its Sunday photo supplement on October 2. Taken on the 69th floor of the GE Building during the last several months of construction, the photo Resting on a Girder shows the same workers napping on the beam. I had no idea that Resting on a Girder existed.
