Scale Model

Margaret Bourke White - 39-foot model of the Empire State Building


  1. Where was this? A Broadway show set piece? Info please.

  2. KONG would be my first guess.

    Not a Broadway show. A 40-foot model in the older theaters would be nearly to the grid or beyond. Although Radio City Music Hall could handle it.
    It might have been a production of "On The Town" - (not sure if it played the Music Hall)... I worked on it at the Gerswhin (the largest theater on Broadway) and the sets on that show looked like crap compared to this monstrosity.
    I'll try to find out more info.
