This photographer was taking pictures of the construction of the Met Building in New York City. Before Buster Keaton filmed it, he was doing daredevil stunts!

He's on the 33rd floor, taking pictures of construction workers. Scary! Wish I knew his name.

Another kind of scary - at least for some of us - is heights. This photographer was taking photos of construction workers at the Met Building in New York City on the 33rd floor (1908). Guess he decided to try standing on the ledge himself?
