Typed on the back of the photo, "Chief of police Lynch and his men in action during the street car strike. Neg. No. 4774, Used 10-5-19." Clipping on the back dated June 22, 1947, reads, "Heavy wire netting covered the glass on all cars and each bore a sign telling of a Federal injunction against the strikers. This car is nursing its way east on 13th Stree, near Broadway, with many policemen on the job. That's Plice Chief J.F. Lynch (back to camera) at the right." Photo shows a street car with the front windows covered with wire mesh and a sign hanging from it that says "The cars of this company are operated under an injunction of the Federal Court. " The destination sign on the street car says "Hayward." Several police officers carrying clubs are walking beside and in front of the car. Several autos and an old-fashioned wagon with wood wheels are parked at the curb.
