Woodbridge Farm

The Woodbridge Farm is a historic farm property on Woodbridge Road in Salem, Connecticut. The property was developed by Nathaniel Woodbridge in 1791, it had more than 200 years of cultivation, many decades of ownership by the Woodbridge family; the property includes an early farmstead, remade in the early 20th century into a Colonial Revival country house. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1997; the Woodbridge Farm is located on southwestern Salem, on more than 150 acres divided by Woodbridge Road between West Road and Connecticut Route 82. All but about 45 acres are wooded, with the open land now taken up by pasture; the main farm complex is located on the north side of Woodbridge Road. A small family cemetery is located in a wooded area east of the farmstead; the farm complex includes the main house and a detached outbuilding, which combine to form a enclosed farmyard. The main house has a 2-1/2 story main block, with ells extending to the left and rear, both of 20th-century construction.

The main block is of wood frame construction, with a gabled roof, central chimney, clapboarded exterior. The outbuilding is anchored by a 19th-century barn, set on an older foundation, from which a series of stables and sheds extend to the north; the farm was established on a 10,000 acres property purchased by Samuel Browne of Salem, Massachusetts in 1700. The Brownes leased the land to tenant farmers, never lived here, their land was seized during the American Revolution because William Browne, Samuel's grandson, was a Loyalist who fled to England in 1776. This parcel was purchased at auction by Thomas Shaw of New London, who built the house in 1791 for his nephew, Nathaniel Woodbridge around the time of his first marriage. Sold out of the family in the mid-19th century, it was repurchased by Woodbridge's grandson, Alfred Mitchell, in 1900; the Mitchells oversaw the conversion of the main house into a country estate house, retaining most of the original features in the main house, adding the ells.

At the time of its National Register listing in 1997, the property was owned by Mitchell's daughters. National Register of Historic Places listings in New London County, Connecticut

London and Provincial Union of Licensed Vehicle Workers

The London and Provincial Union of Licensed Vehicle Workers was a trade union representing taxi drivers in and around London. It was regarded as one of the most militant unions in the country. In 1890, the Metropolitan Cab Drivers' Trade Union was founded by John Beasley; the following year, the London Cab Company raised the charges it made to cab drivers, but the union led a successful strike, the company instead agreed to lower its charges. Membership had fallen to only 300 by the following year. By 1894, the union was moribund, the cab company decided this provided an opportunity to raise its charges again. Workers decided against reviving the old union, instead formed a new one, the London Cab Drivers' Trade Union, which by the end of the year had 2,936 members. Ben Smith was appointed as its first organiser, he proved successful, membership reaching 6,850 by 1896, although it began falling. A combination of extensions to the London Underground and bus routes, increased traffic congestion, was reducing demand for horse-drawn cabs.

In response, the union undertook a strike in 1904 in order to get employers to agree to reduce hire charges, in the hope of increasing business. This succeed after only five days, prompted many other cab drivers to join, membership rebounding to 6,121 by the end of the year; the membership boom proved short-lived, by 1908, it had fallen to a new low of only 1,632, as members began facing competition from the first motorised cabs. Unlike some unions elsewhere, the union decided to embrace the new technology, offering cheap driving lessons to members, in exchange for motor cab drivers receiving higher pay. By 1913, most of the union's members drove motor cabs, the union led a strike which succeeded in getting employers to pay for the petrol used. Again, this produced a boom in membership, which rose to 20,000, the union began recruiting members from outside London, renaming itself as the "London and Provincial Union of Licensed Vehicle Workers"; the union badge was red in colour, given this and its reputation for militancy, it was nicknamed the "red union".

In 1919, the union merged with the Amalgamated Association of Tramway and Vehicle Workers, forming the United Vehicle Workers. 1894: Fred Simmons c.1900: Fred Hill 1913: H. A. Bywater c.1915: Alfred Smith
