After the first Labor Day celebration in New York City on September 5, 1882, other localities began to adopt
the idea of a fall festival of parades and picnics celebrating workers. Here, the Women's Auxiliary Ty-
pographical Union takes part in a Labor Day parade. Courtesy of the United States Department of
Labor. Date unknown.
