    Description

    Franklin D. Roosevelt: Large and Graphic American Labor Party Poster. Impressive and colorful 24" x 34" poster captioned "American Labor Party Roosevelt & Lehman Joint Board Dressmakers' Union Locals 10 22 60 89". The central image depicts union members on a picket line with the Manhattan skyline in the background. They hold signs listing various demands, included "Social Security", "5 Day Week" and "Abolition of Child Labor". The artist is W. Sanger. Dated 1936. Minor damp stain at bottom with scattered small abrasions, some of which have been retouched. Mounted to thick panel, as made, with two drilled holes at top, for display. Very evocative of the period with significant "content". Herbert Lehman was then running for re-election as Governor of New York State. Pictured in Arthur Schlesinger, Jr.'s Running For President: The Candidates and Their Images, vol. 2, p. 193.
