    Default Siege of Sidney Street ,Stepney 1911

    Just found this pic ,( thought it was interesting).
    The Siege of Sidney Street, popularly known as the "Battle of Stepney", was a notorious gunfight in London's East End in 1911. It ended with the deaths of two members of a politically-motivated gang of burglars supposedly led by Peter Piatkow, a.k.a. "Peter the Painter", and sparked a major political row over the involvement of the Home Secretary, Winston Churchill
