One WikiAnswers writer added this:

At least two of the men (the second and third from the right) are Hungarian. The third man from the right is Louis Friedman who was 28 at the time this picture was taken. Louis identified himself in this picture in the 1980's. Mr. Friedman identified the second person from the right as his brother.

My relatives who live in Long Island NY say that the man 3rd to the left is my great-grandfather, Thomas Enright. His father was Patrick Enright who came with family and son from County Claire, Ireland in 1910s. My family recognized our connection by his face but also by the gloves with the stars on them... We have both pictures (Lunchtime Atop a Skyscraper; Resting on a Girder) framed at our family houses.
