ENGLAND. SCENES OUTSIDE THE HOUSE OF COMMONS

GB 1913, P Warwick Trading Company, Print b/w, 35mm, 40 s, silent, BFI National Archive

These newsreel scenes show the policemen swarming the streets of Westminster prepared to quash violent protests. As it happened, according to a contemporary Guardian newspaper report: "women showed no sign of an organised attack, and after a time the crowd became weary of waiting for something and melted away". (Katy McGahan, Make More Noise! Suffragettes in Silent Film)
