More on the St Catherine's Church Fire (1913)

We've covered the 1913 fire at St Catherine's Church, Hatcham, here before. The fire at the Kitto Road building was believed at the time to have been started by supporters of the campaign for votes for women.

Here's another picture of the event, published in The New York Times, May 18 1913. The article reports that the church ‘was destroyed by fire... presumably by a suffragette “arson squad”'.
