One hundred years ago, striking tramway workers brought the sleepy colonial city of Brisbane to the edge of anarchy in an unprecedented general strike.

This publication, written by prominent railway historian David Burke, tells the story of Joseph Stillman Badger, the electrification of Brisbane's trams, and details the events that led to the 'Black Friday' clash between 15000 strikers and 2000 police on 2 February, 1912.
