"We Have Swept Them Out" (from UNITE Archives, Kheel Center, Cornell University, Ithaca, NY 14853-3901 [1927]). Police try to control a crowd, probably of anti-Communist partisans during the violent years following the 1926 strike. This photograph highlights both the public violence that came to accompany partisan battles after 1926 and the way this violence was acted out by male unionists and male gangsters.
