The Triangle Shirtwaist Fire of 1911:
(Part II)
An Emigrant's Experience





This is the second episode in the miniseries on the Triangle Shirtwaist Fire of 1911. Its worth checking out episode 1 before listening to this show.


In the first installment of this series, we chronicled the lives of Annie Doherty & Celia Walker and the often grueling experience of emigrants to the USA at the turn of the 20th Century. This podcast follows these two women into one of the most deadly sweatshops in New York in 1911 - the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory. While working conditions were dangerous at the best of times, this factory would become notorious in March 1911 when a deadly fire broke out. This horrific event would haunt life in New York for decades. The episode focuses on this fire and the experience of Annie Doherty and Celia Walker who were among the hundreds trapped in factory as the deadly conflagration took hold.
