14 x 11.25” blue string-bound photo album with gold design details on the front cover. There is also a stain on the front cover. Contains 50 black-and-white photos and one-color snapshot from the 1962-1963 New York City newspaper strike, which ran from Decemer 8, 1962 – March 31, 1963. The strike, which lasted for 114 days, was for better wages and resisting the automation of the printing press. Most of the photos are of union members posing in the streets and sometimes getting coffee, with signs around their necks which read as: “[Union name/#] on Strike Against The News.” The unions represented in the photos include New York Mailers Union No. 6 ITU, AFL-CID, and Typographical Union No. 6. Towards the back of the album there is a photo of people in a small office with signs at the back which read “Transportation Workers Union Supports Newspaper Strike” and “Seafarers International Union Supports [the rest is cut off].” There is also a photo of men unloading stacks of newspapers from a car; the headline is visible and reads: “The Truth about the Newspaper Shutdown.” At the end of the album there are photos of actual demonstrations in which strikers line the streets of New York. Photos mostly measure 10 x 8” and are stapled to the pages. There are no annotations, but some of the photos are numbered on a pink piece of paper attached to the photos. The name Thomas P. Conmy appears on the back of one photo, and a couple credit the photo to Joseph McKenna. A few photos are loose and about 14 are missing.
