(6584) Strikes, Violence, Textile Workers, Macon, Georgia, 1934

Workers use physical force to prevent a vehicle from breaking the picket line during the Georgia textile workers strike.

Caption on the back of the photograph reads: ““Photo (from September 6) shows scene in Macon, GA just after textile strikers had attacked and overturned an automobile in which three officials of the Bibb Manufacturing Company’s mill no. 2 tried to drive into the plant. A shot was fired by one of the passengers in the car just as the picture was taken, and several of the rioters can be seen ducking. No one was hit.”
