23rd January 1909: Two killed in 'Tottenham Outrage'
Paul Hefeld and Jacob Lepidus, Latvian immigrants armed with pistols, attempted to steal the wages of the Schnurrman's rubber factory in Chesnut Road.
Police from the station across the street from the factory quickly gave chase but were met with a hail of bullets, one killing Ralph Joscelyne in Mitchley Road.
31-year-old PC William Tyler was later shot when he attempted to arrest one of the robbers at a railway bridge near Thackeray Avenue.
The chase continued by Tram, cart and finally by foot across Tottenham Marshes, through Walthamstow and finally into Chingford, where both the gunmen took their own lives after being cornered by Police.
