(6579) Strikes, Violence, Truck Drivers, Minneapolis, Minnesota, 1934

Crowds gather around the wounded after a clash between strikers and police officers during the Minneapolis truck drivers strike.

Caption on the back of the photograph reads: “Policemen and strikers alike were clubbed down as riots continued in connection with the walkout of Minneapolis, MN truck drivers. The toll of wounded in two days’ battling stood at 56, with 36 of these injured during the renewal of fighting May 21. Most of those injured were strikers. In photo strikers and police are shown in one of their sanguine clashes. One policeman was slashed with a knife.”
