1 Comment

Bomb explosion site. Corner of Steuart and Market Streets, San Francisco. During Preparedness Day Parade, July 22, 1916. Bancroft Library.

CSA’s own Dick Walker wrote an article for ACME: An International E-Journal of Critical Geographies about San Francisco’s version of the Haymarket Revolt in Chicago in 1886. According to Walker, San Francisco had its own version of the Haymarket affair, the Preparedness Days bombing and trials of 1916-1917. He compares the history of urban formation and the labor movements in both towns.
