On this day, in 1911, a deadly fire consumed the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory. The factory, which occupied the top three floors of a 10 story building in lower Manhattan began at 4:45 pm. The fast moving fire, fueled by the scraps of cloth and debris that littered the factory floor quickly consumed the factory. While workers on the 8th floor frantically worked to put out the fire, despite the fact that the firehouses didn't work, the workers on the 10th floor made their way to the roof and over to an adjoining building and escaped. Unfortunately for the workers on the 9th floor escape was not possible. There were only a few exits. The elevator which could only hold a dozen people at a time stopped working after only a few trips. The exit doors were locked from the outside and the fire escape collapsed from the weight of just a few of the escaping workers. Most of the workers on the ninth floor died. In total 146 workers perished, most of them teenaged girls. Scores of these young woman leapt to their deaths to escape the flames as the tallest ladders the fire department had only reached the 6th floor. This tragedy, the worst workplace fire in NYC history until 9/11 has led to the creation of many regulations to ensure workplace safety. #todayinhistory #triangleshirtwaistfactory

'They all saw what looked like a bundle of fabric from the garment factory come out of the window. “He’s trying to save the best cloth,” remarked a man, thinking that the factory owners were tossing out their fabric in an attempt to save it.
.
.
Halfway down, the wind caught it and the bundle opened.
.
.
It was not a bundle – it was a girl.'

One of the reasons I love him so much 🤣

Commonly said to be the incident that sparked the New Deal, the fire at the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory on March 25, 1911 was the deadliest industrial disaster in the history of New York City and the country. The fire caused the deaths of 146 garment workers – 123 women and 23 men – who died from the fire, smoke inhalation, or falling or jumping to their deaths. Most of the victims were recent Jewish and Italian immigrant women aged 16 to 23; of the victims whose ages are known, the oldest victim was Providenza Panno at 43, and the youngest were 14-year-olds Kate Leone and "Sara" Rosaria Maltese. The factory was located on the eighth, ninth and tenth floors of the Asch Building, at 23–29 Washington Place in the Greenwich Village neighborhood of Manhattan, now known as the Brown Building and part of New York University. Because the owners had locked the doors to the stairwells and exits – a then-common practice to prevent workers from taking unauthorized breaks and to reduce theft – many of the workers who could not escape from the burning building simply jumped from the high windows. The fire led to legislation requiring improved factory safety standards and helped spur the growth of the International Ladies' Garment Workers' Union (ILGWU), which fought for better working conditions for sweatshop workers.-- Friday, June 2, 2017 #FilmingNYC #Day53 #Filming2017 #FilmingLongIsland #TriangleShirtwaistFactory #TriangleShirtwaistFactoryFire #BerkshireWomensHistoryAssociation #Smithsonian #GreenwichVillage #IndustrialDisaster #ILGWU #InternationalLadiesGarmentWorkersUnion
