Jennie [Sarah Jane] Baines speaking to a crowd at Trafalgar Square following her release from Armley Gaol, 12 December 1908. Jennie had been convicted of a charge of 'unlawful assembly' in Leeds. Defended by Fred Pethick-Lawrence she was the first Suffragette to be tried by a jury and being found guilty was sentenced to 6 weeks imprisonment in Armley jail. On her release she was greeted by a Suffragette delegation wearing mill clothes clogs and shawls. This photograph depicts Jennie's triumphant return to London from Leeds where she was transported through the streets in an open horse drawn carriage accompanied by a brass band and a procession of Suffragettes to a meeting in Trafalgar Square.
