Tilly From Tillamook

By [SOCIAL FICTION] [WHITE SLAVERY] BROOKS, Virginia

Portland: By the Author / Press of A.E. Kern, 1925. Paperback. Written as an expose of the bootlegging and white slavery rackets of Oregon, the novel chronicles the fall and rise of an innocent country girl who comes to Portland from the cheese-making village of Tillamook.

Uncommon in commerce; this is a tight, attractive copy. OCLC finds 15 locations, nearly all in Oregon. Second edition (same year as first). Octavo (19cm). Original illustrated wrappers; 127pp. Covers moderately dusted and darkened; a few faint corner-creases to text; Very Good.

Original Hand-Drawn Broadside Advertising the Debate "Question - Resolved that the Law Should Place a Limit upon the Hours for Daily Labor for Workingmen"

By [ORGANIZED LABOR] McCLUNG, W.E.

N.p., 1892. Quite an attractive and detailed hand-drawn announcement of a Christmas Eve labor debate, the illustration drawn within a trompe-l'oeil wood-paneled frame and depicting two exceedingly young men, simply labelled "President" and "Secretary," though the names of those involved have been added in a presumably different, more scrawling hand. The lower edge claims "All are cordially invited to attend," but the debate having been held "Monday Eve. Dec. 24, '92" leads us to believe that turn-out may have been rather sparse. No union appears to have been linked to the event, and the youthfulness of the two men depicted open the possibility that this was a college debate club event. Hand-drawn broadside (43x35.5cm.), accomplished in black ink and pencil. Some light soil and toning to extremities, a few tiny pin-holes at top corners not approaching image, else Very Good or better.

[Coin Collection Can] Support WPA National Job March to Washington

By [ORGANIZED LABOR] WORKS PROJECT ADMINISTRATION

Detroit, [1937]. Coin collection can to raise funds for the Job March on Washington held in 1937 and organized by the Workers Alliance after cuts were made to the WPA budget. Only 2500 marchers made it to the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, this empty can (numbered in manuscript "no. 113") apparently not seeing any use. Additionally, because of the ill timing of the event (late August, 1937), the marchers found Congress "in the throes of adjournment fever and in no mood to consider unemployment and relief problems" (The Pittsburgh Press, August 22, 1937). Indeed, news articles from a couple months later look back on the job march as something of a non-event. Place of publication based on union slug. Tin can (13cm tall, 8 cm. in circumference), mounted buff paper label printed in orange, coin slot cut into top lid. Paper a bit toned and dust-soiled, else Very Good or better.
