Here’s the photo Irv was talking about today in re: CHRIST IN CONCRETE.  Apparently it was long misattributed to Lewis Hine and is officially anonymous though many attribute it to Charles Ebbets, and it was first published in the photo supplement to the NY HERALD TRIBUNE in 1932.  For more, see trusty old Wikipedia.
