Lawrence Children Arrive in New York

Lawrence Children Arrive in New York

This is a photo from the Library of Congress depicting the arrival of strikers' children in New York City. As mentioned in the previous spread the workers of New York City were very interested in the events of the strike. When it was found out that strikers' children would be sent to New York during the "children's exodus", sympathetic New Yorkers jumped at the chance to have the honor of hosting a Lawrence child. A crowd of a thousand people met the strikers' children at Grand Central Station and led a solidarity parade through the streets of the city.
