Sharing Snapshots

Last summer I found two 1953 snapshot booklets showing picketing employees of the Downtown Oakland Dress shops Dotty Dean, Hatfield's, House of 9, and Zukor's on Fulton Street. The photos are signed on the back- Polly, Flossie, Grace, Claudine, Uldeen, and Etta. All making a stand for better working conditions and pay.

There is something completely fascinating about old photos, especially those taken in your own neighborhood.
