Mr Monkey's Dockland Walk

"You wouldn't want to be in the middle of that"

The last thing Mr Monkey looked at before he caught a train at Shadwell was this mural of the Battle of Cable Street, which is on the side of a building in Cable Street. It's really part of Shadwell-Limehouse walk, not the Wapping-Shadwell, but it's a bit difficult to ignore when you happen to walk past it.

You can read about the Battle of Cable Street at the Communist Party of Britain website (follow the links on the right for the content) or a somewhat different account at the Oswald Mosley website.
