The Dark Roasted Blend website (which had a few other cool and/or funny pictures if you have some time) had this story about stepwells in India. The stepwells differ from normal hand dug wells because the people walk the many stairs to get to the water. The 3500 masonry steps shown in the photo below would have been a construction challenge.
Can you imagine the miscellaneous metals job for doing the railings?
Something that has little to do with construction (except I suppose beer and construction generally aren’t that far separated), I found one of the best commercials ever for Guinness Beer. It’s a great festival of toppling things, from dominoes to upended cars, that took hundreds of Argentine villagers and lots of experts a week. It will make you laugh.
