|Title||Steelworker on the Space Needle during construction, Seattle, 1961 |
|Caption||Pacific Car & Foundry fabricated and built the Space Needle's steel structure. The steelworkers worked at great heights assembling the sections. Work sometimes had to be suspended when it was too windy.|
Here, a steelworker throws a line to a buddy during the installation of the upper levels of the Space Needle. Judging by the progress made on the structure, this photo was probably taken during the summer of 1961.
