    That is a stunning collection of photos. It is only too bad that their perusal is ruined by the format of the page that presented them.

      Yeah, agreed. And unfortunately it's a trend with most "visual" sites like this.

    And, to answer the question I was just asking myself:

    How many people died while building the Empire State Building?
    Though rumors of hundreds of people dying on the work site circulated during the time of its construction, official records state that only five workers were killed: one worker was struck by a truck; a second fell down an elevator shaft; a third was hit by a hoist; a fourth was in a blast area; and a fifth fell off a scaffold.
