Victoria Wake sent this message, and I’m posting it with her permission:

Just wanted to thank Brad and Laborfest for the really good tour today of waterfont labor history. Brad had a wealth of information and photos to show us, and was passionate about the history and its significance for then and now. I also appreciated hearing about the ongoing effort to preserve the block where key events of the 1934 strike took place. If you are able to pass this email on to Brad, I would appreciate it. I’d like to stay connected with his preservation efforts.

Thanks again.
Victoria Wake

P.S. I was only able to attend one other Laborfest event this year but it was also outstanding—the Transcontinental Railroad and Chinese labor presentations at the Chinese Historical Society. What a great group of people working to get more recognition and understanding of those times.
