Charles Ebbets*
'Lunch Atop a Skyscraper'

*Whilst I always thought that this famous image (which is on a large canvas in my front room) was by the photographer and sociologist Lewis Hine, some digging has revealed that this photograph was actually taken by a lesser-known photographer Charles C. Ebbets as this is not the Empire State Building but 'RCA' or 'Rockafella Construction'
