 exploitation of the British Empire. Banners say 'Goldsmiths Anti-Racist Occupation' and Justice 4 Hafez' In the window 'No Racists on

 Deptford Town Hall was built between 1903 and 1905 for the Metropolitan Borough of Deptford. It became

 redundant in 1965 when Deptford became part of the new London Borough of Lewisham

 and the elegant stair on both sides

 with a huge skylight above
