This aerial view shows the site of the molasses storage tank explosion in the section of Commercial St. between Copps Hill and the playground of North End Park in Boston, Massachusetts, on January 15, 1919. The explosion of the steel vat, ninety feet in diameter and fifty-two feet in height, caused 2.3 million gallons of molasses to flood the area, unleashing a deadly wave that rose nearly 25 feet high at one point, killing 21 people and injuring 150. The destructive flood threw people and horses about, smashed buildings, and even damaged the steel supports of an elevated railway. Rescuers had to wade through knee-deep molasses and sticky debris to reach survivors. The cause of the failure was determined to be faulty construction and poor maintenance. In the background is the Navy Yard in Charlestown.
