White Rose brand tribute matchbook. When opened, the black matches are cut to form a city skyline with the Twin Towers on the left. The white cardboard back is spray painted black and the tips of the matches used for the Twin Towers are partially burned.
The Twin Towers were the centerpieces of the World Trade Center complex and the tallest buildings in New York City. Following their destruction, they remained a part of the city skyline in tributes and commemorative items.
