1950   A good closeup of the base leg installation of the 300 foot DZAS AM tower, Manila. Every able-bodied worker on the compound helped with this project, whether or not experienced with tower construction. Here compound woodworker/carpenter Enyong del Rosario helps to push a steel leg into position. Sadly, a professional rigger hired to work on the project, was the only fatality, when crushed by a swinging boom.
