A Rare "Welcome Back" Mug given to tenants After the 1993 Bombing... Given out by the Port Authority of NY/NJ they wanted to Assure the towers were safe to return to. 1993 (issued after the first WTC terrorist attack in 1993). If you see specks-it's lint from washing and drying with paper towel.
In the wake of the February 26, 1993 World Trade Center bombing, the 50,000 evacuees from the complex had experienced not only inconvenience but also strain and fright, especially those obliged to maneuver down unlit stairwells filled with dense smoke. The blast had killed six people. As landlord, the Port Authority offered anxious returning tenants free pastries, a coupon book for use in the WTC's shopping concourse and a blue coffee mug decorated with the agency's logo (depicting the Twin Towers). It bore the upbeat silver-luster inscription: Welcome Back to the World Trade Center. Ten identical 1993 souvenir mugs now reside in the Museum's collection.
