Trafalgar Square Riot Of 1913

What did civil disobedience look like a century ago? Considerably calmer and more formally dressed. Riots broke out after busloads of suffragettes poured into central London, resulting in the police arresting women for their own safety. From the British Film Institute:

A suffragette procession in Trafalgar Square led by Sylvia Pankhurst results in a riot in Whitehall. Policemen are seen escorting Miss Pankhurst away.
