Industrial Workers of the World 1914

Photo Details

An Industrial Workers of the World (IWW or Wobblie) member sporting a protest hat. It reads "Bread or Revolution" - I imagine tht they were protesting for higher wages.

We don't really wear hats now so I guess that this sort of protest sign wouldn't be feasible, but I like it!
