Women Workers in the 1942 Detroit Labor Day Parade by Arthur S. Siegel.
|Wikipedia says that Labor Day:
The entry goes on to say how that has mellowed to more of a day of family rest and recreation (and for political appearances of course).
The Detroit News Rearview Mirror series How Labor won its day by Patricia K. Zacharias does an excellent job of weaving Michigan’s role in the holiday into the broader historical picture and has some great old pictures (be sure to click the button at the top left!).
These pictures were taken at the 1942 Labor Day Parade in Detroit by Arthur S. Siegel. You can click the photos at the right for a larger view too!
