The W. Franklin Hatheway Labour Exhibit Centre is now open in Saint John at 55 Lake Drive South, beside the Hatheway Pavilion at Lily Lake. The Exhibit Centre is open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. from Tuesday to Saturday.
W. Franklin Hatheway, an activist and writer on labour issues, published The Mechanic and Labourer and the Cry of Labour in 1906. In this work, he says: “You men of labour belong to the first order … of labour from which all wealth and art evolve, see to it that you advance with the time, that you get the share of life and liberty due to every decent man, and do not allow yourselves to be thrust back into tireless rounds of unending work by the ruthless hand of the millionaire.”
For more information about the Centre, visit the website or contact Paul Carson at (506) 652-8914.
