A Look Back At London In 1907

It was at the Brotherhood Church on Southgate Road, Hackney, that Lenin, Trotsky and Stalin met for the 5th Congress of the Russian Social Democratic Labour Party in 1907. The site of the now-demolished church is today home to a Tesco Metro. Other major events taking place in the city in that year included the first large procession by the suffragettes, the opening of Strand station (later to become Aldwych, and no longer a stop on the underground), and Hampstead tube station opening.
