During their convention in Indianapolis a group of men from the Pattern Maker's League of North America along with their wives and children are assembled on the south steps of Monument Circle. The league was founded in 1887 as a trade union in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania to promote high standards for workers and craftsmen in the making of patterns, molds and models. During the Great Depression the group lost membership but bounced back during WWII. In 1991 it merged into the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers, AFL-CIO and is now a division of the IAMAW.The original nitrate negative was copied with funds provided by a grant from the National Historical Publications and Records Commission in 1990. This digital image was created from that copy. The copy prints and negatives are stored in Microfiche Number order
