It’s an iconic image of lunch atop a girder on the New York skyline.

Now the 1932 picture of construction workers on the historic RCA Building skyscraper has been re-created with a Huddersfield Town theme.

Professional artist David Walker, 56, working with Town fans on the DATM supporters’ website, has painted Huddersfield Town Legend Builders featuring 11 personalities past and present who have made the club what it is today.

The pencil artwork features Denis Law, Frank Worthington, Andy Booth, Mark Lillis, Marcus Stewart, Herbert Chapman, Jimmy Nicholson, Ronnie Jepson, Billy Smith, Ray Wilson and Alex Jackson.

All the figures, sat on a girder above the old Leeds Road ground, are highlighted in Terrier blue with a watercolour pen.

Stockport-based David has just completed the work, which is now available in a limited edition of 300 prints.

David worked with members of the website who chose who should feature on the legends beam of fame.

“It’s an iconic image that many people will be familiar with,” said David. “But it is much more than just a football picture.

“I have produced similar images for other clubs and it has been particularly taken up by the womenfolk.

“I’m not meaning to sound sexist but ladies generally don’t want football pictures on their walls but everyone likes olde worlde pictures. This is not obviously a football picture.”

Legends isn’t David’s first Town work. He has also produced a picture of Town’s 2012 Wembley play-off final penalty shoot-out victory, another called Strike Force depicting Law, Worthington, Stewart, Booth and Jordan Rhodes and a third celebrating the club’s new McAlpine Stadium.

David, who has produced hundreds of pictures over a 20-year career, specialises in football portraits but concentrates on smaller clubs.

“My club is Stockport County and they don’t come much smaller than that. I gravitate to clubs where I get on with people.

“The legends don’t mean as much to the Premier League clubs but stick County legends up there and it can still bring a tear to my eye. With Manchester United or City it’s just not the same, there’s something missing.”

Prints of Huddersfield Town Legend Builders are available via David’s Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/pages/Original-drawings-and-Paintings/387086454743733?ref=stream for £35 each.
