Eighty years ago, the iconic photo "Lunch Atop a Skyscraper" was taken on 69th floor of the RCA Building in Rockefeller Center (later renamed the GE Building). Ever since the photograph was published anonymously in the New York Herald Tribune on October 2, 1932, the identities of the 11 men at lunch have remained a mystery. Archivists are now certain, however, that the photo was actually a staged publicity stunt to help promote the skyscraper.
A new documentary film “Men at Lunch” explores the story behind the iconic photograph.
