On Cable St you’ll find the former St George’s Town Hall, now a council library on the corner with Library Pl. On the east wall of the building is a large mural commemorating the riots that took place here in October 1936 when the British fascist Oswald Mosley led a bunch of his blackshirt thugs into the area to intimidate the local Jewish population. They were repelled by local people – Jews and non-Jews alike.
