One hundred years ago, striking tramway workers brought the sleepy colonial city of Brisbane to the edge of anarchy in an unprecedented general strike. This publication, by prominent railway historian David Burke, tells the story of American Joseph Stillman Badger, who electrified the trams, and of the events that led to the 'Black Friday' clash between 15,000 strikers and 2000 police on 2 February 1912. 126 pages.
