Arrested Shirtwaist Strikers
Many arrested shirtwaist strikers were brought to Jefferson Market Courthouse, tried, and given harsh sentences. These women, arrested on the picket lines c. 1910, were sent to Blackwell’s Island (presently Roosevelt Island) to serve out their sentence. In this photograph, they proudly wear signs reading "Workhouse Prisoner."
