"GOLDEN LANE" DEMONSTRATION FOR WOMEN'S SUFFRAGE ON THE STEPS OF THE OLD CITY ART MUSEUM AT NINETEENTH AND LOCUST STREETS.

Description

Horizontal, black and white photograph showing suffragists gathered on the steps of the old City Art Museum at Nineteenth and Locust Street for the Golden Lane demonstration during the 1916 Democratic National Convention. The crowd is gathered on the steps of the museum and on both sides of the street. A sign on the left reads: "Headquarters of the National State and City Woman's Suffrage Association. Welcome!" Several cars are traveling down Locust in the midst of the crowd. A tent can be seen in the background.

During the Golden Lane demonstration, demonstrators lined Locust Street in a silent protest as Democratic delegates traveled down Locust on their way to the convention hall. The silent protestors wore white and carried yellow parasols.
