The Cloth Inferno  Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire It was the worst factory fire in the history of New York City occurred on March 25, 1911, in the Asch building, where the Triangle Shirtwaist Company occupied the top three of ten floors. Five hundred women, mostly Jewish immigrants between thirteen and twenty-three years old, were employed there. The owners had locked the doors leading to the exits to keep the women at their sewing machines. In less than fifteen minutes, 146 women died. The event galvanized support for additional efforts to be made to increase safety in the workplace. It also garnered support for labor unions in the garment district, and in particular for the International Ladies' Garment Workers' Union. Much material was provided by several websites, among them are; Photos: Brown Brothers Franklin D.Roosevelt Library Corbis Bettmann The Kheel Center, Catherwood Library, ILR School at Cornell University. Authentic History Center Shorpy.com The Office Museum The Library of COngress Audio National Public Radio Authentic History Center The Kheel Center, Catherwood Library, ILR School at Cornell University However, two of the above mentioned in particular, I want to call attention, the first for an overall exceptionally presented look back at this tragedy and a stunning presentation of the labor movement. Truly a brilliant multi-media presentation. The Triangle Factory Fire -- Presented by The Kheel Center, Catherwood Library, ILR School at Cornell University. http://www.ilr.cornell.edu/trianglefire/ and National Public Radio ... http://www.npr.org/templates/story/st... I can not recommend those two sites too highly. They are top notch.
