This is a very intresting sight. I have learnt quite a lot about the Triagle Shirtwaist fire. – Adam Daly, Ringwood, Australia   19 Feb 2006

Great resource - and a warning to all in planning. Similar tales are still told of conditions in factories in the developing world - often producing for the developed world. Our yesterday is their today. It is also an echo of inadequate working environment even in the developed world. Checking accessibility of exit doors wherever you are (cafes, shops, factories) can be an interesting experience. The growth of huge multistory residential buildings, the conversion of old factory buildings for residential use combine with the lack of practice for residents to evacuate in the event of fire ...to create a risk of future needless loss of life. Co-location of cafes and residential may further increase risk. A sobering site. Highly recommended.? – elaine , wollongong australia   17 Feb 2006

I have written two reports involving the Triangle Shirtwaist Fire, one in my Sophomore Year and one this semester in my post Bachelor degree, while I prepare to go to USD to work on my Masters. I am now 52 and remember seeing a movie about the fire, however I cannot locate any information on it. Can anyone remember the name or anything about it. – Steve Bratton, Britton South Dakota   16 Feb 2006

I am doing a Diary entry project on Rose Freedman a survivor of the fire and this site really helped me out a lot. I cant help but be facinated by what happened it was such a tragedy that could have been prevented if the people that owned the building gave a crap about the people that did all of the work for their company, but then again they thought that they had to chain them up to keep them there and working. This whole situation was just wrong and never really had to happen. I am truly sorry for all of those who have lost loved ones in this unfortunate fire. – Lindsey, VA   15 Feb 2006

I realy LOVE this site.I'm doing a project on this, but when I try to find image to enlarge the picture Ican't find it.THANKS – K.D, TN   12 Feb 2006

This year is the 90th anniversary of the fire. Will there be special commemorations? – John Tepper Marlin, New York City   10 Feb 2006

I am a descendant of a fire victim, Clothilde Terdanova. My grandmother saw her jump from the 10th floor. Family heresay is that this was turning point in her life and she had a nervous breakdown. As a result of two youngest children (of six children) were placed in an orphanage. One of the two boys was my father. So because of this fire, his life was changed forever. It was enlightening to see my grandmother and great aunt actually mentioned on this site and in Leon Stein's book. I wish I had known about both of these five years ago before my dad died. He would have felt some pride. – Cathy , Dix Hills, NY   10 Feb 2006

It's sad that it took a tragedy like this to wake the world up to labor conditions. We've come a long way, but there's still a long way to go. – Lisa, Kansas   5 Feb 2006

As a class of 1957 graduate of Cornell I am embarrassed to say that until I read Mr. von Drehle's "Triangle" recently, I had no idea Cornell sponsored a site like this one. It is an online museum and a fine educational tool. Thank you very much. – MHP, Chambersburg, PA   25 Jan 2006

My Aunt lived @ 14 Washington Place in Manhattan for 50 years before she died a few years ago. Whenever I visited her I always sat at the window looking down on the busy and noisy street, amazed and interested at the people and their activities. After reading Triangle by David Von Drehle, I had chills because I don't know which building it was or how close to my aunt's apt. that factory was located. She lived 2 blocks from Washington Square Park. God Bless those young people, they were so brave! – Lisa A. Pickering, Mansfield, Ohio   21 Jan 2006

Very good articles and pictures – vp, Rome,, NY   20 Jan 2006

The Triangle Waist Company fire has always defined my attitude towards the capacity of business interests to disregard those of nearly everyone else. Was it Hoover that ssid, "There's nothing wrong with capitalism; it's the capitalists. They're too greedy." I'm glad to find the subject so fully covered. – J Walker Rugino, Sonoma County, CA   20 Jan 2006
