View of farm laborers gathered for a hops labor strike in Wheatland, Yuba County ca. 1913. Photographer: C.C. Green. Donor: Juanita Neyens (loan)
"Is this the first picture of protesting farm workers in America? The general view, looking east, away from the town of Wheatland, appears to be nothing more than a ground level photograph of the hop picker camp. But under a magnifying glass, a group of people can be seen listening to speakers who addresses the crowd from several platforms at the left-center of the picture. About three hours later at this location, pickers and sheriffs clased, and four people died." Richard Steven Street, 1982. Picture used as evidence in Ford Trial of Hop Riot
190 x 250 mm
