The Youngest Speaker

A very special moment at Speakers’ Corner in London’s Hyde Park in February 2002, though certainly not my best pictures.

This speaker was just 9 years old.

Never before or after have I seen that much sympathy and respect from the audience at Speaker’s Corner. Many people actually sat down on the cold pavement so the speaker did not have to crane his neck in order to see his listeners’ faces. And the crowd was huge! I was hardly able to take half decent pictures at all.
