Steve Biko Way commemorates the South African anti-apartheid activist.

Stephen Biko (1946 – 1977) was a South African anti-apartheid activist. His ideas were articulated in a series of articles published under the pseudonym Frank Talk.

In 1973, the South African government deemed Biko a subversive threat and imposed a banning order on him, which severely limited his activities. Despite this, Biko continued to be politically active and played a role in organising various community projects in the Ginsberg area, including a healthcare centre and a crèche. During this time, he received numerous anonymous threats and was detained by state security services on multiple occasions.

Biko was beaten to death by state security officers after being arrested in August 1977. His funeral was attended by over 20 000 people, reflecting the widespread impact of his activism and the deep mourning that his death provoked

No 36 Upper East Smithfield
My great great grandfather was born at No 36 Upper East Smithfield and spent his early years staring out at a "dead wall" of St Katharine’s Docks. His father was an outfitter and sold clothing for sailors. He describes the place as being backed by tenements in terrible condition and most of the people living there were Irish.

Name origin
Interestingly South Lambeth derives its name from the same source as Lambeth itself - a landing place for lambs.

But South Lambeth has no landing place - it is not on the River Thames
