I bought this long ago from a friend that lives in New England.  At the time I thought it was Masonic in origin, but have since had that belief dispelled, because there is no G in the central emblem.  I know it's a long shot, but if any of you have any clue what organization this image is from, I'd sure like to know.

I would guess a labor union of some kind.

The description of their emblem certainly matches. Thanks for the pointer.

After doing a little research it now seems that this is from/about the Junior Order of United American Mechanics. Here's a link to a book about the group that includes numerous facts that support this attribution:
