Remembering the Triangle Factory Fire, 100 years later

Mourning & Protest, Victims & Survivors

22 of 48

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.
