Springfield, Massachusetts / Menands, New York: Dr. Charles F. Storey / Retail Store Employees Union, [circa 1965].
Unbound. Double-sided broadside. Thin card stock. Measuring 13.5" x 18.25". Interesting broadside printed on both sides feature two completely different subjects. One side is a poster in support of an African-American dentist running for City Council in Springfield, Massachusetts; the other side is in support of a strike against the Topps Company, best known for their baseball and other sports cards. Presumably the union printer (a printer's union slug appears on both sides) used previously printed stock for a new job. We could not find the exact date of either event, but Dr. Story was very active in the black community of Springfield, especially around the mid-1960s. An interesting artifact displaying dual use of a single card sheet.
