Tense Moments, 1939

Although the Fisher Body strikes were generally nonviolent in Collinwood, there were some tense moments, such as the one shown here during a later strike in 1939. Another incident occurred on the first night of the Fisher Body strike on December 28, 1936. Picketers blocked the departure of a train that was meant to transport the car bodies manufactured by the plant earlier that day. Eight Cleveland police were sent to try and break up the picketers, but the strike supporters remained for three hours.
