The Fence


Click image for larger version.


Shortly after the bombing of the Murrah Federal Building, authorities erected a chain link fence around the site to keep passersby safe.  That fence was made an informal memorial by the people of Oklahoma City and others from all over the country by hanging items of remembrance and respect on the fence. 


When the memorial was built on the site of the fallen building, the design wisely kept the fence as part of the memorial.  This shot, taken over 10 years after the bombing shows a portion of that original fence.  The items on the fence today are not the same items originally hung on the fence.  Visitors to the memorial add new items to the fence making it a living and constantly changing memorial to the victims of April 19, 1995.
