This is a demonstration by the Popular Front on 14th July 1937 in Rouen. All corporations are represented and the crowd is large. Even more so than the previous year, the clear threat of fascism is what dominates most banners. In the distance, the silhouette of the transporter bridge is the fixed point where many people go to. 'Boater' is very much the fashion, although you can also see many caps and some borsalinos. Fists are raised with conviction.
