“Lunch Atop a Skyscraper,” the iconic 1932 photograph of ironworkers perched on a beam 840 feet in the sky, is probably one of the most recognized photographs of the 20th Century.
While the ironworkers in the photo really were the men building the 30 Rockefeller Plaza building, and are actually on-site, it is widely believed that the photograph was staged and not captured spontaneously. Hilariously, this has led internet conspiracy theorists and/or jokesters to misbelieve that the photograph is fake.
