Farmer Labor Moving Sign

This 1928 poster marked the alliance of two Progressive political parties that were committed to the rights of workers and farmers in Minnesota to earn a decent living.  From 1930-1938 the Farmer-Labor party was the most successful third party in the United States.  It controlled the governorship, senate and house seats, and many positions in city government.
