The caption for this
photograph in the 'Granton, Now
& Then' exhibition read:
"A march during the Great Dock Strike of 1889
which drew attention to their two main claims:
- the abolition of contract work,
a chief cause of sweated labour, and
- the claim for a minimum
wage of sixpence an hour, the dockers' 'tanner'.
Ironically, the Dock Labour Board was
abolished one hundred years later in 1989."
