Clifton Rise Picture

This image shows the view at the top of Clifton Rise on 13th August 1977. The New Cross Inn is on the left. There appears to be a line of police at the bottom of Clifton Rise, and contingents of police both outside the pub (on the left) and at the other corner of Clifton Rise/New Cross Road. Reproduced from 'Changing Times', a booklet produced by children from Childeric Primary School in 1993 (published by Deptford Forum Publishing)

What a beautiful picture of working class solidarity

Beautiful I may have been at the time but the event was inspirational, I would have said.
This was our 'Cable Street Moment'.
