This is the third in the series of photo essays relating to the Imperial War Museum.
Hangar 17 was a place where material was gathered from the 9/11 tragedy. It contained office equipment, shop stock, structural equipment, rescue vehicles, taxi’s, passing cars. And then there is a series of photographs constantly played on this screen.
Somehow these photographs of the materials were more poignant than some of the iconic photographs of the twin towers coming down. I lost many friends in this disaster, colleagues who worked for Salomon Brothers and SunGard. All who died in the attack.
And while its not weepy sad, its extremely powerful to see these images of the peripherals which got caught up in the accident. This itself made the entire trip worthwhile, I tell you. I had to drag myself away. Sighs.
