Commemoration

2 of 42

The "Triangle Fire Memorial to the Unknowns" in the Evergreens Cemetery, Brooklyn, was created in 1912 by Evelyn Beatrice Longman. Below a carving of a woman mourning, the inscription reads, “In sympathy and sorrow citizens of New York raise this monument over the graves of unidentified women and children who with one hundred and thirty nine others perished by fire in the Triangle Shirtwaist factory Washington Place March 25 1911.”
