Broken windows at the tobacconists' Salmon and Gluckstein. Smashed by suffragettes as part of the West End window-smashing campaign, 1 March 1912. In Votes for Women, 23 February 1912, the WSPU defended their decision to pursue a policy of window smashing. 'Deeds not Words is the motto of this movement, and we are going to prove our love and gratitude to our comrades by continuing the use of the stone as an argument in the further protests that we have to make....does not the breaking of glass produce more effect upon the Government?'.
