The protest took place on 13th October 1963.  The photo shows mothers with their babies in prams, accompanied by men holding placards.  An older woman also holds a sign.  There may be someone gathering signatures for a petition in the background.

Do you live in South Oxhey?  Is there a crossing in this place now.  If so, you may have these determined residents to thank.
