17th Annual Convention, Calif. State Federation of Labor. Eureka, Cal. Oct. 1916 [photograph]
Available From More sellersView all copies of this book
8-1/2 by 6-1/2-inch black-and-white photograph on a larger stiff mount. The California Federation of Labor was (and is, under its new name, the California Labor Federation) the most important umbrella group of unions in the state. In 1916, shortly after the railroad and the state highway were extended to Humboldt County, the group held its annual conference in Eureka. This photograph show a large group of men, women, and childrens picnicing in a forest. The official proceedings report the group adjourned to New Era Park, across the by from Eureka, for lunch on October 2. This scene is identified in a modern hand as Sequoia Park (the only remaining old-growth redwood grove in the city) and several local experts concurred with that assessment. If so, this must have been an informal gathering, not part of the official program. Humboldt Brewery supported the convention and probably supplied the tipple (root beer?), visible in bottles in front of every participant. A few spots on the mount, else a fine photograph.
