To mark the anniversary, members of the modern day West Ham Labour Party are organising a free walking commemoration tour around Stratford town centre.
Meet 7pm Wednesday 4 July 2012 outside the Old Town Hall, High Street, Stratford, E15. Which of course was where the 1892 election count took place and it was from its open balcony overlooking the High Street that the result was read out to cheering crowds and Hardie made his first speech as a Labour Member of Parliament. For people on the walking tour, Newham council have kindly offered to provide a tour of the Old Town Hall on the evening.
The tour will be very informal and will take around 90 minutes following which people will be the opportunity to go for an optional meal at Manus Indian Restaurant in nearby West Ham Lane. Or a beer (or Temperance soft drink) or two may be purchased at the King Eddie’s or one of the other historic pubs in the area.
