I have had this mirror for years, I thought maybe from Europe or??? So I took apart today. It has beveled glass, brass I think, (not magnetic), and it says inside Tyler and Hoppach Chicago. I looked this up and only found between 1903 and 1907 there were strikes in N.Y. and Chicago, pretty nasty ones with Pinkertons and violence. see this!
Tyler & Hoppach, Chicago, 111.

SAME OLD STORY; THE SAME
ENDING.

Echoes of the brewery strike of 1903,
in Columbus, O., are hesfrd in Judge Rath-
mell's court In the case of Valentine
$10,000. damages because of an alleged
Spohn, who is suing Nicholas Schlee for
breach of contract to give him employ-
ment for life.

Spohn sets up the claim that he was a
a union man when the strike came on
April 1, 1903, but that, at the solicitation
of Mr. Schlee and upon his promise to
work for life, he refused to go out with
the others, but remained at work in the
brewery. He was discharged on February
9, 1905, after the troubles between the
brewers and their employes had been
settled. — Columbus Press-Post.

The impressions of childhood do much
to shape the thought and course of ma-
tured life, therefore, teach your children
the truth and as they grow up they will
know that it is easier to secure justice
through combination than single handed.

    I was thinking maybe this mirror is valuable as in the 1920's many were destroyed by Al Capone and gangsters shooting at G-men with Tommy guns around Chicago! Just kidding! haha
