Lewisham Communists, 1926
This photo of Lewisham Communist Party members was taken in 1926. It is featured on the cover of 'Communism in Britain, 1920-39: from the cradle to the grave' by Thomas P. Linehan (2007). I found another, smaller version of the same photo online in which you can see that as well as the main banner ('Communist Party Lewisham Group, 1905, 1917, Workers of the World Unite'), they are carrying red flags with hammer and sickles.
