An automobile axle was laid across the tracks at McClintock Ave and 37th, presumably by union railway strikers, and caused the derailment of a trolley on the yellow line carrying over fifty passengers.
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.
A different photograph taken on the same occasion appears with the article, “P. E. Offers Union Wage Concessions,” Los Angeles Times, 19 Dec 1934: 1.
