Vintage Old Real Photo Photograph Photographic Postcard, Canada, Winnipeg Riot, General Strike, Street Scene. Horses. Horse Riders. June 10/19. June 10 1919.

Background: The Winnipeg general strike of 1919 was one of the most famous and influential strikes in Canadian history. For 6 weeks, May 15 to June 26, more than 30,000 strikers brought economic activity to a standstill in Winnipeg, Manitoba, which at the time was Canada's 3rd largest city. In the short term, the strike ended in arrests, bloodshed and defeat, but in the long run it contributed to the development of a stronger labour movement and the tradition of social democratic politics in Canada.
