Suffragette Womens March 1912

In October 1912, six women left Edinburgh to walk 400 miles to London, gathering signatures en route in support of Women's Suffrage. The march was organised by Mrs. De Fonblanque (sister of Maud Arncliffe-Sennettt). The marchers wore a coat and skirt in russett brown with a matching hat, and earned for the marchers the name of the 'Brown Women'. The route lay along the Great North Road and the women covered a distance of about 15 miles a day. They carried a banner designed by Louise R Jacobs for the Suffrage Atelier. The march ended in London on November 16th 1912. Photo shows a stop made, possibly in Doncaster. Date: 1912

In support of a strike by coal miners over the issue of threatened wage cuts, the Trades Union Congress called a General Strike in early May 1926. The strike only involved certain key industrial sectors (docks, electricity, gas, railways) but, in the face of well-organised government emergency measures and lack of real public support, it collapsed after nine days.
