Now That Was a Strike

(via Gothamist)
Anyone know anything about the Actor's Strike of 1919 in New York? Actually, there's a pretty interesting history on the Equity web site here.

The picture above is from a new photo archive operated by the Library of Congress. Lots more great labor history photos too.
