On the walk we stopped in Theobalds Road to pay tribute to the people killed and injured in the March  on Sunday 13th November (‘Bloody Sunday’) 1887 from Clerkenwell Green to Trafalgar Square. Morris walked at the head of the 10,000 marchers demonstrating against unemployment; they were ambushed by mounted cavalry at the top of Shaftesbury Avenue. The police were appallingly brutal. This was  a deeply disillusioning and upsetting experience, especially for Morris. More details here. (A pity this post wasn’t up yesterday, May Day.)
