There were three news photographers shooting that day: Charles Ebbets, Thomas Kelley, and William Leftwich. To this day, it is unknown who among them took the iconic photograph, but the photo itself has since been reimagined and replicated over the decades.

The can-do spirit is certainly not what it used to be. Thanks for the link.

No Photoshop back then so no controversy about it being a real photo. Staged or not, it's a great great photo.

That photo is on my mouse pad. I got it on a visit to NYC a few years ago.

I think the photographers were as brave as the workers. I would never have been one of either group. I admit to having acrophobia.
