Person Male Died 23/1/1909
Anarchist. During the so-called 'Tottenham Outrage' (see there for the full, exciting, story) Lepidus and his henchman Paul Helfeld (or Hefeld) commandeered a tram. The picture is not a photograph but an artist's rendering of the point in the chase where, the perps having hijacked a tram, the police (all 40 of them) commandeered another tram and set off in hot pursuit, ding, ding. We are not sure whether the man holding the gun to the driver's head is intended to be Lepidus or his partner in crime, Helfeld. As the police finally closed in on them, Lepidus committed suicide.
