Remembering and reflecting on the 'Battle of Lewisham' in August 1977, when a mobilisation by the far-right National Front in South East London was met by mass opposition

Syd Shelton

Along with Ruth Gregory, Syd Shelton was one of the two key designers for Rock Against Racism in the late 1970s, working on their fanzine Temporary Hoarding and creating striking graphics for posters, badges and stickers. Some of this was featured in an exhibition at Chelsea Space in 2008, along with some of Syd's photographs from the time. This image is from Lewisham '77,
showing police horses on the street (New Cross Road?).
