Labor Day Celebration at Johnson’s Island in 1897

On September 6, 1897 the Sandusky Trades and Labor Assembly held their eighth annual Labor Day celebration at the Johnson’s Island Pleasure Resort Company.

Speakers of the day were Jacob Holl, Jr., Isaac Miller, and the Honorable Max S. Hayes, a well known labor leader from Cleveland.

Scouton’s Concert Band, conducted by Will Scouton, presented concerts in the afternoon and evening. Dancing was enjoyed as well, including waltzes, the two-step, and a schottische.

Advertisements from Sandusky businesses are found throughout the program.
