The arrest of the Suffragette Ada Wright, 1908. It is probable this photograph refers to the arrest of Ada whilst attempting to 'rush' the House of Commons on 13th October 1908. The handwritten date [11-02-08] appears, therefore, to be incorrect. One of 24 women and 12 men arrested for their part in 'rushing' the House of Commons Ada was sentenced to one month in Holloway prison.

On the occassion of Ada's arrest in October 1908 Votes for Women noted that Ada 'has worked for many years on behalf of Progressive County Council and London School Board Candidates. Ada also worked at Toynbee Hall and various working girls clubs'.
