A photograph of police leading a man under arrest through crowds during trouble between fascists and communists, taken by Malindine for the Daily Herald newspaper on 7 June, 1936. A policeman on horseback clears a path. Struggles between parliamentary democracy, communism and fascism dominated the 1920s and 1930s. The East End of London in particular saw clashes between members of Sir Oswald Mosley's (1896-1980) British Union of Fascists, and members of the Communist Party. 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.
