Hustle them in, and bustle them in,
Scoop up th’ shriekin’ mob
Who says that “Justice” is going to win
When “the Law” takes up the job?”

From suffragepostcards.wordpress.com: This postcard features the arrest of a suffragette, later identified as Mary Phillips. She has a policeman at each arm and the group are escorted by around six mounted police and others on foot. A male crowd watches as the group pass. Behind them is a bus heading to Kings Cross.

A biography of Mary Phillips is available in Crawford’s The Women’s Suffrage Movement and online at Spartacus Education and a photograph of her at Bath in time. Copies of the postcard can be seen at the Museum of London and Diomedia.
