Oswald Mosley’s British Union of Fascists planned to march through the largely Jewish East End on Oct. 4, 1936. The government refused to stop the march, so 300,000 anti-fascist demonstrators stopped it for them in the face of 10,000 police.

From the book London: Portrait of a City (Reuel Golden), recently released by Taschen.
