"Has Your Rent Been Raised?" [Broadside]. Russian Hill Communist Club. Prices Skyrocket! Has Your Rent Been Raised? Are You Paying Russian Hill Stores 60? a Pound for Hamburger? What Can We Do About It? [San Francisco]: Russian Hill Communist Club, 1947? 11" x 8-1/2" mimeographed broadside. Moderate toning, else fine. $250. * This broadside advertises a mass meeting held by the Russian Hill Communist Club of San Francisco and co-sponsored by the American Veterans Committee and "15 Other Community Organizations" to organize around the restoration of World War II-era price and rent controls. Federal price and rent controls began in 1942 as a response to the instability of the U.S. wartime economy, but were allowed to expire on June 30, 1947. The American Veterans Committee, founded in 1943 as a liberal alternative to other veterans groups, was a significant voice among those advocating for the controls to continue and held several rallies in support of tenant organization and rent control in 1946 and 1947. This broadside appears to be unrecorded. No copies located on OCLC or Library Hub.
