RIOT
PEACEFUL OLD CITY SEES
RARE STREET FREE-FOR-ALL
W HEN 1,000 London dockers rioted re-
cently in protest against the trial of seven
union members, fists and nightsticks flew until
British "Bobbies" restored order. Of a score
of arrests, that of balding brawler (above,
left and right) was most spectacular.
Police finally threw  a mounted cordon
around Old Bailey Court House while the trial
was in progress. Inside the court house, dock-
ers, charged with conspiring to incite illegal
strikes, eventually were acquitted after all.
