The Red Plaque of Cable Street


The Red Plaque of Cable Street

A Red Plaque and the Battle of Cable Street

Location: Tower Hamlets

Description: From Tower Hill go east along Royal Mint Street and you will come to a street on the right called Dock Street with Cable Street ahead.

Turn into Dock Street and about 30 metres along you will see a red plaque on the opposite wall. This plaque recalls the Battle of Cable Street when the inhabitants of East London rallied to Cable Street to force back the march of fascist Oswald Mosley and his Black shirts through the streets of East London.

Is this the only red plaque in existence...?
