This is Buckingham Palace in 1913 totally saturated with scaffolding using the then new "Scaffixer" coupling device. Standardised tubular steel pipe scaffolding became used worldwide soon after.


Before that rickete wooden scaffolding was held together by far less robust and stable rope, according to the narrative.

Are we to believe that all previous buildings in history, some hundreds of feet high and of awkward complex shapes, were built by skinny little workers manually hauling up very dangerous heavy masonry on rickety rope-held scaffolding?!

Or were the workers bigger and stronger than us, or given Divine/angelic/demonic/magical.ET/unknown technological assistance?

They use bamboo in SE Asia, to the moon. Yes, dudes are dying every day falling off them, but they have no issue using scaffolding. The western civilization has lost the guts to do this.

Daily Mail story, but it still tells the story.
