[N.p., but perhaps Oakland or Berkeley: 1944]. Printed broadside, 5.25 x 8 inches. Minor foxing and staining, light edge wear, penciled note covering most of verso. Very good. Item #3081
A small and apparently unrecorded broadside calling for African Americans interested in working as bus drivers and street car operators in the San Francisco Bay Area during the latter portion of World War II. The notice calls for interested parties to apply at the offices of the East Bay Employment Association between 4:00 and 8:00 PM between December 1 and 9, 1944. We could locate no information on the East Bay Employment Association, but it was almost certainly located in either Oakland or Berkeley. This employment advertisement was perhaps the result of a wartime shortage of bus drivers and street car operators in the Bay Area. We could locate no other copies of this interesting and somewhat mysterious broadside.
