In this black and white photograph, taken in 1907, an unknown photographer has captured the intrepid Horace Ashton, sitting on a girder above the East River, capturing the view from his own unique perspective. At this time, Ashton was probably working for the Underwood & Underwood studio. In addition to photographing the construction of the Queensboro Bridge, Ashton's many other projects include photographing the Wright Brothers' first flight, taking a portrait of Mark Twain, and working as cinematographer on the 1930 documentary of the Ojibway Indians, The Silent Enemy.
