Strikers and protesters running away from tear gas sprayed by officers on 7th and Broadway.
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.
Different photographs taken on the same occasion appear with the headline, “Police Hurl Tear Gas to Break Up Wild Strike Riot at Seventh and Broadway,” Los Angeles Times, 27 Nov 1934: 3.
