  • Description

    Mass meeting in London (?) around beginning of World War One, concerning internment of enemies.

    Location could be Speakers' Corner, Hyde Park?

    General view of rally from above and behind of crowd - a sea of hats, nobody is bareheaded. About 15 men stand on platform in the front; one angry man is speaking to the crowd, gesticulating wildly. In response to something in his speech the men on the platform and nearly all those down in the crowd raise their right hands in the air.

    American cataloguer notes "Spy mania was in full swing so the idea of internment was popular; Asquith gave in to the public pressure and aliens from age 18 to 45 from enemy countries who were living in Britain were shut up in camps."
