    You wrote this diary. And it was no small accomplishment!
    It must have taken you weeks to complete. All those links at the bottom take a lot of work too!

    Thank You For All The Work You Put Into This Diary!

    My Mother showed me the Triangle Shirt Waist Building, as we walked past it once when I was about ten years old. She worked as a runner bringing seamstress's skirts to be pleated, picking up material and other things from NJ to NYC, started working at about age seven.
    My Mother could sew.

    She told me how the Women were jumping out of the building to escape the flames!

    Thank You for this well written Tribute to the Shirt Waist Factory Workers. You really did a great job!
