1. Good catch. Also, notice how the R in FORD is *identical* to the R in the word MORE

in the other sign, and the Rs in CARRIAGE and WORKERS are the same too. The Ms and Es in MORE and AUTOMOBILES are identical as well. Clearly a photoshop.

2. Yeah. To believe it was real

you'd have to then wonder what computer font the carriage workers had used on their signs.

But people seem to be believing it anyway, so it should be corrected.

18. also, the printing style isn't characteristic of the era. balloony letter, more

 

like a teenaged girl today than male workers of the thirties.

union strikers usually carried printed signs (made in the local's shop) then anyway.

3. Excellent catch!

Very cagy of them to try using a Mexican file photo to try to avoid getting caught.

The lower sign on the right is cockeyed, too, and would never have stayed on a pole like that.

10. It looks to me like the photo was probably taken

during the presidency of this man: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Plutarco_El%C3%ADas_Calles

There was a horrible anti-Catholic period of time under Calles.

6. The worst part of this is it's some moron

worker enjoying union benefits like 40 hour work weeks, overtime pay, sick days, health care, retirement benefits, and vacation days.

Maybe they would like to go back to where we were before unions got us these things.

7. It's an absurd concept, anyways

Unions follow what the labor market produces.

Ever heard of the Teamster's Union? A "teamster" was someone who drove horse-drawn wagons. See many wagons parked at warehouses these days?

Unions don't fight to keep the SAME EXACT JOB, despite technological advances. They represent whoever's WORKING and TRAIN people in new work.

In fact, Labor unions are VERY cognizant of trends, technology and social change. Moreso than the executive class, I find.

17. What would be even better would be if you could do that in the same font they used

Anyone know what that font is called? The one with the funny Rs and Ms like I mentioned in my reply earlier?

14. No way would that graffitti pass for lettering in the Depression era

It looks like some girl scrawled it on a bathroom wall.
