you ever wondered how a sky scraper is made? This book tells the
story of the Empire State Building, which was completed in 1931, and immediately
the tallest building in the world. To this day, it ranks among the
most amazing accomplishments of American Architecture. Using new
building techniques, records were set for the incredible speed and efficiency
of the building.
Let’s take a peek inside the book and see how the steel beams were joined together with rivets. (look inside at the pictures…)
