Triangle Fire

For endless hours police officers held lanterns to light the bodies while crowds filed past victims laid out in numbered rough-wood coffins. As the dead were identified, the coffin was closed and moved aside for the family to claim.

In the April 5th funeral procession for the seven unidentified fire victims, members of the United Hebrew Trades of New York and the Ladies Waist and Dressmakers Union Local 25, the local that organized Triangle Waist Company workers, carry banners proclaiming ?We Mourn Our Loss.?
Photographer: unknown, April 5, 1911


Mourners carry a bunting-draped banner in the pouring rain during the six hour procession April 5, 1911 to honor victims of the Triangle fire.
Photographer: New York Tribune, April 5, 1911


While this flower-laden carriage was pulled through crowded streets in silent funeral procession for the unidentified victims of the fire, the remains of the seven unclaimed victims were quietly taken from the morgue and buried in the City?s Evergreens Cemetery plot. Private burial rites were conducted for Jewish, Catholic, and Episcopal faiths.
Photographer: unknown, April 5, 1911


Rain on April 5th did not diminish the numbers drawn to honor the fire?s victims and to pay their respects to the 7 still-unidentified. The silent procession of 100,000 mourners marched past 300,000 others who bore witness to the sacrifices that had been made and confirmed their resolve to see justice served.

Marching through cold rain and mud, protesters hoped to rally support. Signs call for fire drills in every shop, closed shops with union contracts, an end to political graft and to days spent working in fire traps.
