Labour Party Posters Collection by Spencer Pryse

Background

The Labour Party, which was founded in 1900, didn’t become a real challenger to the Conservative party till the 1920’s (http://global.britannica.com/topic/Labour-Party-political-party). It was in 1910 that Pryse created his three posters used in their campaign which saw their greatest gain in seats yet. The industrial revolution played a large part in reshaping the western world, developing the wealth of the nations (particularly Britain) at the expense of the workers, therefore the Labour Party was created in an attempt to push back to reclaim parliament for the common man.

Mint Condition Posters

Unemployed, Workless and Landless were truly a reflection of the state of Britain for those working class people who had seen their opportunity for success limited. This was also in a time when women didn’t yet have the right to vote (http://www.parliament.uk/about/living-heritage/transformingsociety/electionsvoting/womenvote/keydates/).
