This mural by Wasp Elder (@waspelder) depicts a reimagined story of Lynn's industrial revolution in the Shoe Industry.  On the left and inventor, Jan Earnest Matzielger, and on the right the female work force who made up large numbers in the factories and who were pivotal during rallies and strikes. 

The invention of automation in factories was a way of controlling workers who often used their skilled labour to control their bosses and gain raises in wages through striking.
