This sculpture was created by Elias (Dutch) Schultz, a Seattle longshoreman, Spanish Civil War veteran and social activist. It depicts longshoremen grieving over a member killed
during the 1934 west coast maritime strike. "Bloody Thursday"
refers to Thursday, July 5, 1934, when police clashed with union
members in San Francisco.
