Guide to the Jack Doyle New York City Construction Photographs
||Jack Doyle New York City Construction Photographs
||Jack Doyle was President and Business Agent of Iron Workers Local 40. Doyle took the
photographs in the collection between 1968 and 1987, during the course of his work
on four major building projects in New York City: World Trade Center Tower 1, 7 World
Trade Center, Rockefeller Medical Center, and the J.P. Morgan Building. Doyle kept
a camera in his tool kit and made a photographic record of aspects of the work which
interested him, including new technology, difficult procedures, and near accidents.
Many of the photographs depict the beams and girders that would form the buildings
and the cranes and derricks needed to lift them into place. Doyle also took pictures
of his friends and co-workers on the jobs. The collection documents the building construction
processes of the period and the daily lives of union members.
