People gather to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the 1911 Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire on March 25 in New York City. Participants marched through Greenwich Village before the ceremony, carrying shirtwaists and sashes emblazoned with fire victims' names.

The devastating fire killed 146 workers, mostly recent immigrants, who were locked in the factory and could not escape. The tragedy led to better safety regulations and the formation of factory workers' unions.
