#2 Nice trucks they had back in around 1800 when the White House was built... yeah.
#7 Reinforced concrete - THE shit back in 1793!

I am most amazed by the fact that you would be able to make PHOTOS of buildings being BUILD in let's say 1799 when photography would be invented in the 1820s - just wow!

#32 Great construction photo. I guess that's what you call turnkey, right?
