Titled in ink in the lower right-hand corner of the mount. Photographer unknown. Photograph was taken on the street outside the Labor Temple.

With the flood of German immigrants following the failed 1848 revolution came new political ideas. Among these immigrants were members of the Turners, an athletic (gymnastic) and political organization early in the nineteenth century. By 1893 the Turners had almost 42,000 members in 316 American societies. This photograph was taken just before the First World War, after which anti-German sentiment greatly reduced the numbers of memberships.
