Serrated garden trowel with a red handle. The trowel is covered in dust and its blade is tarnished and rusted.
Like many rescue and recovery workers, George Luis Torres, a firefighter with FDNY Squad 41, adapted equipment to meet specific needs at Ground Zero. Torres used this garden trowel to dig through rubble.
