Taff Vale Railway strike, 1900

A poster announcing that no trains would be running on the Taff Vale Railway on 26 August, and a handwritten schedule giving details of resumed freight services after the strike. The union was made to pay the railway company £23,000 in damages for striking. This lack of immunity seriously hampered the activities of trade unions, until the Trade Disputes Act of 1906 removed liability for damage by strike action.
