Gray cotton and polyester t-shirt printed in black with image of the World Trade Center and "I SURVIVED TERROR AT THE TOWERS".
This t-shirt was purchased one or two days after the first bombing of the World Trade Center on February 26, 1993 by Allen Baird, a trader on the Cotton Exchange located in the twin towers. He was evacuated from the building when the bomb, located in the underground parking garage, exploded and smoke began entering the exchange rooms.
Gift of Allen Baird
