Battle of Cable Street
The Battle of Cable Street took place on Sunday 4 October 1936 in Cable Street in the East End of London. It was a clash between the Metropolitan Police, overseeing a march by the British Union of Fascists, led by Oswald Mosley, and anti-fascists, including local Jewish, socialist, anarchist, Irish and communist groups. The majority of both marchers and counter-protesters travelled into the area for this purpose.
Commercial Road (part of the A13), 2 miles in length, is in the London Borough of Tower Hamlets in the East End of London. It runs from "Gardener's Corner" (on which stands Aldgate East tube station), through Stepney to the junction with Burdett Road (A1205), Limehouse from which point the route becomes the East India Dock Road.
St George in the East
St George in the East is an Anglican Church and one of six Hawksmoor churches in London, England, built from 1714 to 1729, with funding from the 1711 Act of Parliament. The name of the church was also the parish for the surrounding area, until subsumed into Metropolitan Borough of Stepney and abolished in 1927. The church was hit by a bomb during the Second World war Blitz on London's docklands in May 1941.
Cable Street is a road in the East End of London, England, with several historic landmarks nearby. It was made famous by the Battle of Cable Street in 1936.
The Highway, formerly known as the Ratcliffe Highway, is a road in the East End of London. The route dates back to Roman times. In the 19th century it had a notorious reputation for vice and crime and was the location of the infamous Ratcliff Highway murders. The name 'Ratcliffe' literally means 'red cliff', referring to the red sandstone cliffs which descended from the plateau on which the road was situated down to the Wapping Marshes to the south.
Tobacco Dock is a Grade I listed warehouse in London. It was constructed in approximately 1811 in the Docklands area of east London and it served primarily as a store for imported tobacco. It is a brick building with many brick vaults and some fine ironwork. It was adjacent to a particular set of docks named London Docks, which have now mostly been filled in. Tobacco Dock is owned by Messila House, a Kuwaiti investment company.
St Paul's Church, Shadwell
St Paul's Church, Shadwell, is a historic church, located between The Highway and Shadwell Basin, on the edge of Wapping, in the East End of London, England. The church has had varying fortunes over many centuries, and is now very active, having been supported recently by Holy Trinity Brompton Church.
Bluegate Fields (also known as Blue Gate Fields) was one of the worst slum areas that once existed just north of the old, east London docks during the Victorian era. Two streets in the area had actually been named Bluegate Fields at different times – present-day Dellow St. (along the eastern edge of the St. George’s-in-the-East church yard) is one of them – Cable Street (along the northern edge of the church yard) is the other.
Shadwell and St George's East railway station
Shadwell railway station was a railway station in the parish of St George in the East, London on the London and Blackwall Railway that is no longer open. It was situated 50 yards to the east of the present Shadwell station on the Docklands Light Railway, with the station entrance on Sutton Street (Shadwell DLR's entrance is on Watney Street). It was between Cannon Street Road and Stepney (now Limehouse) stations on the line.
Cannon Street Road railway station
Cannon Street Road railway station was one of the stations on the London and Blackwall Railway, which first opened in 1842. It was open for just six years, before closing in 1848. The reasons for its closure are unclear, but it may well have been a result of poor usage, combined with its close proximity to other stations. In 1877 a new station was opened slightly to the west at Leman Street railway station, likely picking up some of the former traffic.
The George Tavern is a Grade II listed public house and music venue located at 373 Commercial Rd, London E1, owned and run by artist Pauline Forster. It was formerly known as the Halfway House, and contains original brickwork from the Halfway House, a tavern some 700 years old, mentioned by Chaucer, Pepys and Dickens. Now a music, performance and arts venue, known for photoshoots and filming.
