A Socialist Calendar 1982

The BOAG Foundation (1944-1984) in Canada produced its first Socialist Calendar in 1981 and annually for the next three years. Journeyman imported copies of its 1982 and 1983 editions. Each calendar reproduced stunning paintings chosen by Colleen Bostwick to honour the men and women whose energy and sacrifice illuminated labour and socialist struggles around the world.
