International Workers Day has been celebrated since the 1880s to commemorate the contribution made by working people and the labour movement.
To celebrate our history, we bring you two images taken from our very own TUC Library collections held at London Met to mark the occasion.
One is from May Day 1926, produced by the socialist illustrator Walter Crane.
The second is from May Day 1986 during the Wapping Dispute.
Rupert Murdoch was seen as a pariah and people were calling for the boycott of his newspapers!
We hope to bring you some news in relation to the TUC Library collection soon…
