Item of the Month – January 2014

General Election leaflet, January 1910This leaflet comes from the January 1910 General Election.  It helps to illustrate the novelty of the motor car at the time, which could be used as a way of encouraging people to vote.  The candidate concerned, one Oscar Bowen for Labour, stood in Stratford-on-Avon and lost by 1,667 votes to the Conservative and Unionist candidate.

The Labour History Archive & Study Centre has over 80 boxes of material relating to General Elections from around 1910 to 2001.
