Site: Poplar Rate Rebels mural (4 memorials)

E14, Hale Street, Tower Hamlets Parks Department depot

From the absolutely excellent London Mural Preservation Society: "Originally painted by Mark Frances, the mural features four panels telling the story of the Rates Rebellion, mostly in words. It depicts George Lansbury and local residents holding 'Can't Pay Won't Pay' placards, in reference to the anti-Poll Tax campaign of the early 1990s, contemporaneous to when the mural was first completed. Names of the imprisoned Councillors feature along the bottom.  The mural was restored in 2007 by David Bratby and Maureen Delenian with help from local children."

September 2021: Diamond Geezer reported that the mural "has been given a repaint to celebrate the centenary".
