In November of 1934, members of the Amalgamated Association of Street and Electric Railway Employees confronted the Los Angeles Railway Corporation to contract with their union in support of wage increases ad to operate under union rules. A strike followed when the union was challenged and railway operations were halted or slowed down on a number of occasions. Members of the Los Angeles Railway Employees Association replaced strikers. This photograph appears with the headline, "Street Car Strikers Map campaign as Company equips for Possible Violence," Los Angeles Times, 25 Nov 1934: 11. Text from negative sleeve: L. A. Ry Strike 6546 Street Car Strike L. A. 1934 Text from newspaper caption: Mass meeting of Los Angeles Railway strikers yesterday afternoon in the Labor temple Auditorium. Speakers exhorted the strikers to "use their own ingenuity" in inducing workers remaining on their jobs to walk out, one leader asserting "This is no Sunday-school picnic! This is industrial warfare." Daily meetings of strikers are scheduled in this auditorium, where the men were urged to take others whom they persuaded to quit working.
