The Siege of Sidney Street. Another great photo from BBC4’s Britain in Focus with Eamon McCabe.


Considered the first ever photojournalism shot, by Daily Mirror photographers.  Very poignant in these days of armed police on our streets.  They were trying to hole out a gang of armed robbers in London’s Sidney Street in 1911.

And another, the killing of three of the robbers resulted in riots.
