    Unused / unissued footage - dates and locations may be unknown or unclear.

    San Francisco, United States of America - April 1947.

    Various shots of skirmishes between strikers and police occurring during the mass picketing demonstration of telephone workers in San Francisco (US phone strike).

    M/S as women demonstrators are hustled into a police van. Various shots of confusion and scuffles as protesting men demonstrators are bundled into police vans by policemen. Strikers watch and boo the police.

    L/S panning down the main building of the Pacific Telephone and Telegraph Company to pavement below where six pickets, the legal number, are patrolling - they look pretty tired and bored.

    More shots of people being put into police vans while the crowds watch. Looks like traffic is at a standstill.
