Artist's Description

The first strong, long-lasting local unions were established in the boom construction decade, 1879-1889, when United States population growth accelerated.

Journeymen in the pipe trades in the 1880s worked in three basic crafts: plumbers, steamfitters and gasfitters. Plumbers were by far the largest group of journeymen.

It was only 19 years after the end of the Civil War, in 1884, when delegates of various pipe-trades local met in Cincinnati and established the International Association of Journeyman Plumbers, Gas Fitters and Steamfitters and Steamfitters Helpers of the United States and Canada.
