The General Strike - hitching a lift

An ingenious device for getting a lift: a girl clerk in South London obtains a motor-cyclist cavalier. A girl holding a sign saying Please take me waits for a lift into London during the General Strike. In support of a strike by coal miners over the issue of threatened wage cuts, the Trades Union Congress called a General Strike in early May 1926. The strike only involved certain key industrial sectors (docks, electricity, gas, railways) but, in the face of well-organised government emergency measures and lack of real public support, it collapsed after nine days
