Window Cleaners Pose For Photo “On The Job”
The unusual photograph above shows a group of men working at what is considered by many as one of the most hazardous occupationsâ€”cleaning the windows of a “skyscraper” building. The photograph was taken from the 86th floor of the 102-story Empire State Building in New York, N. Y. As can be seen from the photo, the window cleaners trust their lives to stout leather belts which pass through rings in a leather girdle strapped around their bodies, the hooked ends of the belts being attached to metal lugs protruding from the window frames.
