Caption: Unemployed men and sympathizers stand for photographers at 12th and Olive streets on Jan. 13, 1930, during their march to City Hall to protest the economic events that were overwhelming them. Not yet two months after the great stock market collapse of October 1929, many people already had been thrown out of work. The 300 demonstrators demanded city jobs. But Mayor Victor Miller, who refused to meet with their leaders, said the city had no money to hire the unemployed. Press reports identified some of the leaders as members of the Communist Branch of America. Twelfth Street is now Tucker Boulevard. (Post-Dispatch)
