About This Item

N.p.: N.p., 1930. Vintage photograph showing rows of cots and resting or idle strikebreakers at the 147th St yards of the Interborough Rapid Transit Company, 1930. With a mimeo snipe, press agency stamps, one dated "Jun 28 1930," and manuscript pencil annotations on the verso.

The Interborough Rapid Transit Company of one of the original private companies contracted to operate the first New York City subway lines. Unsuccessful strikes by transit workers against the company took place throughout the early 1900s, but we can find no mention of any strike in 1930. In 1934, subway workers successfully organized the Transit Workers Union of America, and struck in 1935. The IRT was purchased by the city in June 1940, as part of an effort to consolidate public transportation under their management.

10 x 8 inches. Very Good, with chipping to the edges, not affecting the image, and light soil.
