An Illustrated History of American Labor #13


Original Caption:

New York -- This is a view of the city room at the New York Herald Tribune, as a strike of the photo engravers union went on through its fifth day. The strike began when about 400 photo engravers, who make the engravings which reproduce photos and advertising illustrations, walked out of three morning and three afternoon papers on December 28th. The Herald Tribune, suspended publication voluntarily the night of December 30th, becoming the seventh to halt. The Herald Tribune staff reports as usual, ready to "roll the presses" as soon as the strike ends. Publishers and union negotiators recessed their joint session on December 2nd with no settlement in sight and a meeting slated for the next day. (1953)
