    Fire. In fact, check out This chapter from Kingsley's Alton Locke, Tailor and Poet (1850) called "Cheap Clothes and Nasty" which illustrates some of the enduring abuses and exploitations of those who make clothes by those who broker them.

      Thanks for contributing this title. I love to read more of what we don't get in the mainstream. The Triangle Shirtwaist fire was a blip in my high school history book. and I point this out because that is the level of history most Americans get. Thanks again!
