Ironworker construction helmet belonging to Larry Keating is seen in this photograph before becoming a part of the National September 11 Memorial & Museum in New York August 22, 2011. Larry Keating was an ironworker foreman who helped oversee the removal of wreckage from the World Trade Center site during the nine-month clean-up operation following the attack, and was chosen by the ironworkers union, Local 40, to represent his colleagues at the ceremonial removing of what became known as Last Column - an upright piece of of the towers that had become covered in mementos from the clean-up workers and from which flew an American flag. He wore his hardhat throughout the clean-up, and continued to wear it proudly for site visits until his death in 2011 from a heart attack. The museum, which occupies seven stories below the ground of the World Trade Center site--is still being built at the site of the fallen towers. It is due only to open in 2012, on the 11th anniversary of the attacks. Picture taken August 22, 2011. REUTERS/Lucas Jackson (UNITED STATES - Tags: ANNIVERSARY DISASTER)
