Trade Union Banners 1894 London

Picture with caption trade union banners at the opening of Peckham Rye Park 1894

It would be interesting to check the local newspaper report of the opening to confirm this fact as this would be one of the earliest photographs of trade union banners

Certainly the Gas workers union had a number of large demonstrations on Peckham Rye linked to strike action at Old Kent Road Gas Works (below  Gas workers union rally Peckham Rye 1889)
