    The biggest health concern during the Depression Era was the ability to pay for medical care. During and following WWII, veterans began returning home in need of medical attention and often times extended medical attention depending on their wounds. Irwin & Leighton's longstanding relationship with the Federal Government again kicked in in 1940 with the Veterans Hospital in Bath, NY. In 2013, the hospital was added to the National Register of Historic Places. #ourfirst110years

    In order to house large helium-filled dirigibles, the Navy hired Irwin & Leighton to build Lakehurst’s Hanger No. 1, a massive structure measuring 961 feet long, 350 feet wide and 200 feet high. The great spans and clear height were achieved through state-of-the-art design. Inside it, Naval engineers assembled the first American-built airship, the Shenandoah. Lakehurst was also the location of the now infamous Hindenburg disaster. The crash of the Hindenburg dirigible on May 6, 1937 over Lakehurst was the 20th Century's first transportation disaster widely captured by newsreel, audio recordings and still photos. #110yearsandcounting #buildinghistorysince1909 #ourfirst110years
