Plaque: Anti-fascists

Inscription

They shall not pass.

Site: John Harvard and the Anti-fascists (2 memorials)

SE1, Borough High Street, 211, John Harvard Library

The Harvard plaque does not explain why it is here, on this particular spot. Possibly his father's butcher's shop was here.

The Anti-fascists plaque is inside the library near the entrance door.
