Description

Plate taken from the 'Illustrated London News'. The angry mob throw bricks and debris through the glas roof of the station, and the men climbing from the tracks seem about to attack the rail workers in uniform on the platform. Thousands of strikes erupted during the 1880s and 1890s. Some of the most furious were the Great Railroad Strike of 1877, the Haymarket Riot of 1886, and the Pullman strike of 1894.
