Oo-yar! I don't know how you are about heights, but if I climb a step ladder at home, by the fourth rung I'm clinging on for dear life.
So spare a thought for the Akiens, a fearless family of Belgrave steeplejacks, who, for more than 100 years, scaled Leicester's greatest heights.
Seen here through a telephoto lens in September 1958, three members of the Akiens family, looking very at ease, ascend to giddy heights to inspect a tall factory chimney in Barkby Lane, Leicester, prior to repointing it – all without any safety harnesses.
Strewth. I think I'll stick to the terra firma.
