It’s the 50th anniversary of the 1964 New York World’s Fair! Walt Disney and the imagineers were an integral part of the most popular pavilions at the Fair. Here Walt is explaining the production of Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln for the State of Illinois Pavilion at the Fair. Walt was a huge admirer of President Lincoln, and this was a personal passion of his. These GIFs are taken from Disneyland Goes to the World’s Fair (1964).

Joseph McCarthy was one of the leaders during the Red Scare by exaggerating the dangers of Communism and accusing fellow American politicians of being Communists.

Photograph of Fire Fighters at the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory, 03/25/1911

One of the deadliest industrial disasters in United States history, the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire in New York City left 146 workers dead in 18 minutes on March 25, 1911.  
Locked doors kept the workers from escaping; there was not enough water to put out the flames, and firemen’s ladders were too short to reach the upper stories. Many of the young women and men working there leapt out the windows and fell to their deaths onto the sidewalk outside. Others were crushed in the elevator shaft or when the fire escape collapsed.
The fire led to sweeping reforms in labor laws and safety standards, providing a boost to labor unions, and was a pivotal event in the career of future labor secretary Frances Perkins.

Our post from 2012 has additional photos of the fire and the victims, a few may be considered graphic.  
(We’re assuming the photo above shows fdny in action at the fire.)
