H96.1.41


Clipping on the back of the photo reads, "As the general 'labor holiday' in Oakland went into its first day, an unidentified woman attempted to enter the 16th street entrance to Kahn's department Store. The massed pickets, liberally sprinkled with high school age youths, prevented her entry and pushed her into the street. Dec. 5, 1946." Handwritten in pencil above the clipping "A blond woman tried to go into Kahns 16th entrance and was shoved but hard." Photo shows a large crowd of men and boys with one woman [possibly the woman who was shoved back from the entrance] right in the middle of the crowd with a man standing behind her either shoving her or holding her arms to steady her.
