Fred Evans procession

A procession in memory of Frederick George Evans approaches Victoria Park, Auckland, from College Hill on 12 November 1913. Exactly a year earlier Evans, a striking engine driver, had been killed by police and/or strike-breakers during the Waihī mining strike. The anniversary of his death was a rallying point during the 1913 Great Strike. Workers around the country marked the occasion.
