This gem of a video depicts the life of a scaffolder in the 1950s perfectly. Working from one scaffold board 200ft above the Thames, scaffolders erect structures around Tower Bridge in London for stonemasons to make vital repairs after WW II.

The video by Britsh Pathe allows us to see just how far our industry has come in the respect of industry innervations and the health and safety of workers today.
