During the months of June, July and September 1911 the City of Liverpool was rocked by a General Transport Strike which spiraled into major cavil unrest. The situation deteriorated to such a degree that troops and a gunboat had to be sent to the city. In this picture Soldiers of the 2nd Warwickshire Regiment disembark at Brunswick CLC Station which was at that time a major goods facility. It is likely that the CLC's main Liverpool Station, Liverpool Central would have been besieged by striking railway workers and their sympathisers. This was perhaps the first time since 1874 that the station had been used by passenger trains.
