Conquering the skies

Of interest to those deiselpunks amongst you, the British Broadcasting Corporation had recently put together this short film concerning the pioneering builders of those buildings which came to represent modernity and have become a mainstay of any modern city - the skyscraper.

Given that I suffer from vertigo, I have great admiration for those brave souls who worked on their construction with little thought to the death-defying tasks to which they dedicated themselves.

To say nothing of what the pioneers of cinematic comedy put themselves through!
