Description:
Vann E. Hettinger's photograph of the fire at Adler's Department Store on Broughton Street, Savannah GA. Taken May 20th 1958. Hettinger's recollections of taking these photos were that he was recently out of college and had his first real job at I.B.M. "I was supposed to be at work but the fire was just too appealing. I was aggressive enough to get close enough to get wet from the spray of the hoses. So I had to go home and put on a fresh shirt and tie before returning to work."
