Redstone Building, Saturday March 16

2940 16th Street, The Redstone Building, formerly called “The San Francisco Labor Temple,” was built in 1914 for the San Francisco Labor Council, including labor union offices and meeting halls. The building was a hub of union organizing for over half a century. It played a significant role in class war organzing, like the long and violent 1917 United Railroads Streetcar Strike, as well as the 83-day West Coast maritime strike that led to the 1934 San Francisco General Strike. Six of the murals inside the lobby depict the history of class struggle in San Francisco, like the 1934 general strike, the Chinese women garment workers who went on strike against the National Dollar Store factory in 1938, the department store strikes of the early forties and the career of Dow Wilson of Painters Local 4, who was assassinated in front of the building in 1966. The Redstone once hosted Theatre Rhinoceros or The Rhino, founded in 1977 (relocated here in 1981), which produces original LGBT live theater and is the world’s oldest and longest-running queer theatre. It left the Redstone in 2009.
