Yesterday in New York City, people commemorated the 103rd anniversary of the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire where 146 workers died after a fire broke out. They had been locked in from the outside by the owners, so many people were unable to escape. It was mostly young immigrant woman who died.
At the commemoration, a fire ladder was raised to the same height that a ladder was raised on the day of the fire, which was not high enough to reach the workers trapped on the top floors. People then read off the names of the 146 workers who died in the fire, and a fireman rang a bell for each death. Flowers were also laid on the ground in front of where the factory was.
