Full image caption

This picture shows three Suffragettes preparing to chain themselves to railings in 1909. Vera Holme the WSPU chauffeur is on the right. Padlocking themselves to the railings of Government buildings gave suffragettes the opportunity to make lengthy political speeches. The women had as long as it took the police to cut them out of their padlocks and chains. Otherwise they would have been arrested immediately.
