Photo postcard of building damaged during Hamilton, Ontario Street Railway strike
In November 1906 a dispute arose between the Cataract Power, Light and Traction Company and its employees at the Hamilton Street Railway. On November 5, 1906 a strike was called. The general manager of the company was determined that the streetcars would run and the strikers were equally determined that they would not. Much property damage ensued at the car barns and when rocks were thrown through the office windows of the company building.
