(6580) Strikes, Violence, Truck Drivers, Minneapolis, Minnesota, 1934

Strikers and police clash during the Minneapolis truck drivers strike.

Caption from the back of the photo reads: “The crumpling knees of the special officer who has just been whacked on the back of the head with a table leg tells the story of some of the violence in Minneapolis, MN, May 22, in the second day of rioting in the truck drivers strike. Running three abreast toward the camera are special officers hastening to the scene of this melee, but they arrived too late to prevent this attack. Note the badges on the special officers. One special deputy was killed by strikers and their sympathizers.”
