I have a poster of this classic photo. Looking for the history. Was it staged? Please provide if you have info.

The famous lunch on a skyscraper has now been made into a bronze statue, to be placed at the WTC site. This picture is very dear to me and my siblings, because the 3rd man on the right was my father. He was no actor, he was a person from Newfoundland, Canada, as were most of the men on the skyscraper in the 4 pictures that were taken that day. It is so famous, it was seen in a restaurent in Singapore, as in Newfoundland, Canada. I have the 2 of 4 prints.

I had a friend here at work meet one of those men not so long ago!! He was looking at the picture and an old man tapped him on the back and named some of the men in the photo. A few of them are Irish as he is himself! He is still living and lives in Donegal, Ireland.

I am looking for the plaster figures or the name of the artist that makes them of the 11 men on the beam in the picture. I have 3 but would like to get more.
