The photographers Charles Ebbets, Thomas Kelly and William Leftwich were all shooting the Rockefeller Center construction workers the day Lunch Atop a Skyscraper was made.

It is not known which one took the iconic picture.

It was taken on September 29, 1932 from the 69th floor of the RCA building during its last few months of construction. Despite being published in the New York Herald Tribune a few days later, the photo spent the better part of the past century either misattributed or marked with "photographer unknown". Not until 2003 did a thorough investigation uncover Ebbets as the photographer behind the image.

The B&W photo is 24" x 36" is in a frame as shown....there is no glass in the is in great condition.
