Found on EBay: Justice for the McNamaras

justice_for_mcnamaras_ebay_2018_0723

A vendor on EBay has listed one of the buttons that was created by the AFL to protest the trial of the McNamara brothers in the 1910 bombing of the Los Angeles Times. According to some accounts (possibly true, possibly folklore), the gutters of downtown Los Angeles were full of these buttons after the McNamaras pleaded guilty.  Bidding starts at $50.
