Lightbulb The Emperor's Match

From Elves & Fairies by Ida ..

Matchgirl strikers..

The owners (Francis May and William Bryant), who were both Quakers, had started importing red-phosphorus based safety matche's from John Edvard Lundström, in Sweden, in 1850..The London matchgirls’ strike of 1888 was a strike of the women and teenage girls working at the Bryant and May Factory in Bow, London..The strike was caused by the poor working conditions in the match factory, including 14-hour work days, poor pay, excessive fines and the severe health complications of working with white phosphorus, such as phossy jaws, but was sparked by the dismissal of one of the workers on or about 2 July 1888..Social activist Annie Besant became involved in the situation with her friend Herbert Burrows and published an article in her halfpenny weekly paper "The Link" on 23 June 1888..
