A photograph of crowds at a meeting addressed by Prince Monolulo for the International African Friends of Ethiopia in Trafalgar Square, London, taken by Tomlin for the Daily Herald newspaper on 25 August, 1935. Tensions were rising as Italy threatened to invade Ethiopia. Ignoring international pressure, Italy attacked in October 1935. Soldiers entered the Ethiopian capital, Addis Ababa, in May 1936. Ethiopia was liberated in 1941, during World War Two. This photograph has been selected from the Daily Herald Archive, a collection of over three million photographs. The archive holds work of international, national and local importance by both staff and agency photographers.
