The explosion of the steel vat ninety feet in diameter and fifty-two feet in height caused 2.2 million gallons of molasses to flood the area, killing 21 people and injuring 150. In the background is the Navy Yard in Charlestown. By BiPasha Ray The Associated Press BOSTON Danny OBrien looked at a photograph of firefighters knee-deep in molasses trying to rescue people trapped in a collapsed firehouse, and remembered his grandfathers tales of sticky horror. Those stories were something ... horses stuck in this sea of molasses, a lot of cars, people stuck, houses smashed to pieces, said OBrien, looking through a Boston Public Library exhibit commemorating the 85th anniversary of Bostons Great Molasses Flood, which killed 21 people and injured 150. His grandfather lived in the citys North End, where on Jan. 15, 1919, a gigantic steel vat exploded, spewing 2.3 million gallons of molten molasses. Thirty-foot waves of gooey liquid plowed through the streets, catching men, women, horses and vermin in its sticky flow, crushing freight cars, wagons and auto--mobiles and reducing entire buildings to broken planks of wood. They were smelling it for years after that, said OBrien, whose grandfather volunteered to help with the months-long cleanup. The exhibit Molasses Flood: The 1919 North End Disaster, contains photographs and newspaper accounts of the devastating flood that paved the way for more stringent construction safety standards across' the nation. It runs until the end of January. The tank, 50 feet high and 240 feet around, was built in 1915, just as the demand for molasses used to produce industrial alcohol for ammunition as well as rum was skyrocketing at the peak of World War I. Its site on the waterfront was convenient for delivery ships coming from Cuba, Puerto Rico and the West Indies. But the tank, built in a hurry with faulty design, was at the edge of the citys most densely-populated neighborhood, the North End, where pohtically-mactive Italian immi grants had little clout, said Stephen Puleo, the author of Dark Tide, a book about the flood released in September. The tank leaked constantly, worrying employees and neighbors. But m their rush to keep up with demand, company officials just repainted the tank in the same color as the leaking molasses. In 1919 the war had just ended and Prohibition was looming. Purity Distilling, wanting to make a last batch of alcohol before it was banned, dumped a large shipment of molasses into the tank on Jan. 14, filling it to near capacity. Warm molasses in the tank mixed with cold molasses from the new shipment, starting fermentation and creating gases that pushed on the tanks weak walls, according to Puleos book. Just after noon the next day, nearby workers and neighbors heard a deep rumble. A muffled roar burst suddenly upon the air, read a Boston Herald story displayed in the library exhibit. Mingled with the roar was the clangor of steel against steel and the clash of rending wood. Spurting high into the air and in far reaching spread, were great ribbons of thick-brown fluid. The huge tossing geyser of molasses settled to be-plaster the outer walk of the neighborhood outside the destroying force of the explosion, sink into big pools on the flat roofs and to inundate in an adhesive, the streets, alleys and debris, read the newspaper account. A one-ton piece of steel from the vat flew into a trestle of elevated railroad tracks, causing the tracks to buckle. Two children collecting firewood and dripping molasses near the tank disappeared under the fast-spreading liquid.
