1929-we can conquer unemployment

Mark Pack has a posting over on Lib Dem Voice  on how leaflets used to look. Today he has a1929 leaflet. We have featured before the 1929 Manifesto 'We Can Conquer Unemployment'. I was very pleased to receive a copy kept by a long time Birkdale Liberal activist H G Williamson of Grosvenor Rd (which is now in Dukes Ward) You will note that the Southport election result is written on the top left hand corner. Our candidate was Cecil Ramage-best remembered today not as a Liberal MP, or a barrister but as an actor in Kind Hearts and Coronets where he played the prosecution counsel

I am happy to address most contributions, even the drunken ones if they are coherent, but I am not going to engage with negative sniping from those who do not have the guts to add their names or a consistent on-line identity to their comments. Such postings will not be published.

Anonymous comments with a constructive contribution to make to the discussion, even if it is critical will continue to be posted. Libellous comments or remarks I think may be libellous will not be published.

I will also not tolerate personation so please do not add comments in the name of real people unless you are that person. If you do not like these rules then start your own blog.

Oh, and if you persist in repeating yourself despite the fact I have addressed your point I may get bored and reject your comment.

The views expressed in comments are those of the poster, not me.
