Great Molasses Flood 1919 - Fire Station Destroyed

Rubble is all that's left of a fire station on Jan. 16, 1919, the day after a giant tank in the North End collapsed, sending a wave of approximately 2.3 million gallons of molasses through the streets of Boston. An estimated 2.5 million gallons of molasses were in the tank at the time of the explosion.
