Kennistoun House rent protest, Kentish Town. Local people gather outside Kennistoun House, Kentish Town, to watch an angry protest over rent and to prevent a police van from entering the courtyard. Tenant Don Cooke, who had barricaded himself in his council flat, had been evicted from the house that morning. He and fellow tenant Arthur Rowe were protesting against rent increases demanded by St Pancras Borough Council.
