Labor History and Market Street - Walk
(With SF City Guides - by Chuck Schwartz)
The guide will start with the streetcar strike of 1907, talk about the events that led up to Bloody Thursday 1934; then, Bloody Thursday and the General Strike and funerals on Market Street; Thomas J Mooney and the So Called Bomb Trials; then walk up Market Street to the Mechanics Monument where the tour ends the walk with stories about the monument; the sculptor Douglas Tilden and how the Mechanics Monument became a favorite gathering place for labor because of the unusual way it depicts the nobility of labor rather than captains of industry or military heroes.
