Pictures 14.5-1 and 14.5-2.

Some of the strikers pose for the newspaper photographer, probably hoping to bring their complaint to the attention of the citizens.  The lower picture is outside Carrollton Station car barn; the upper might be in the same area.  The pictures are backstamped by the news agency July 12, 1920, but might have been taken much earlier in the month.  A note penciled on the back of one of the original photos claimed that there were 2100 carmen and 600 track employees on strike.  Strikers in the lower photo were waiting outside Carrollton Station, and after six hours watched the first car operated by strike-breakers leave the barn under heavy guard.
