Description
The Triangle Waist Co. factory was located on the top three floors of the Asch Building on the corner of Washington Place and Green Street in Manhattan. The fire on March 25, 1911 killed 146 garment workers, most of whom were Jewish immigrant women. This image was taken the day of the fire. Notice the burned out windows on the upper floors.
