This book records the struggle of working people for a better life. It does so by exploring the visual record of labour organisation in its various forms: the banners, regalia, pennants and streamers, emblems and badges, certificates, pamphlets, cartoons and journals, film, paintings and drawings, and photographs which workers together have made and used.
Collected in this way, these forms are an expression of Western Australian workers' effort to organise, educate and agitate, in order to improve their working and living conditions. (Introduction)
The book is dedicated to the 25th anniversary of the establishment of the Trades and Labor Council of Western Australia.
