Funeral Parade for Triangle Victims, April 5, 1911

The funeral parade for the unidentified victims of the Triangle fire was held on April 5, 1911. Jewish union members met the non-Jewish unions, middle-class suffragists, and socialists in Washington Square Park and marched together through a driving rain up Fifth Avenue. Pictured here are members from Local 25 of the Ladies Waist and Dressmakers Union and the United Hebrew Trades of New York during the funeral procession.
