BATTLE OF LEWISHAM LONDON 1977

Lewisham, South London. 1977<br />
A Socialist Workers Party member breaks through a police cordon to reach members of the National Front, who are protected behind police lines.<br />
<br />
This photograph was exhibited at the Photographers Gallery in the 1970s and the subject introduced himself and bought a print. If you're out there, get in touch, as I would like to add your name to the caption, if that's OK.  And the policeman too.
