Bklink: 1909 Columbia St. Comb Factory Tragedy

On Nov. 8, 1909, a celluloid comb factory at 150-152 Columbia Street was hit by a devastating fire that took ten lives. There were no fire escapes and workers couldn't get out because of iron bars on the second floor windows. The owner committed suicide ten days later.--Fading Ad Blog
