"Down in one of New York's poorest districts, half a hundred families are crowded into an old house at 90 Stanton St. Fire that started in an adjacent tenement was sucked through the air shafts by the high wind, almost smothering all those who live there. Here is a rescue." PM Daily, March 19, 1941
