Title

Water St. Labor Parade, June 8, 1937

Description

The Rice Collection annotation reads: "On June 8, 1937 the closest that the Perry Knitting Mill came in a brush with the unions who were organizing. Their organizing was dispensed when suddenly a group of farmers (?) with pitchforks appeared and stopped the parade. No one has ever identified who was in the group."

This photograph shows a small number of pro-union marchers under the eye of several police officers. A couple of observers can be seen in the windows above. A tag on the reverse side of the photo reads: "Water St. Labor Parade, June 8, 1937. Officer extreme left: B. Leland Brei, a sheriff's deputy. Lad in white shirt: John Kapusciarz, Water St."
