The Moderates Idea of Municipal Reform


Progressive Party poster from the London County Council Elections of 1907

This poster depicts a large cartoon showing men with human heads and bodies made of sponge walking into a sea marked London and coming out engorged with water.

The caption at the bottom of the poster reads,'Sponges that want to fill themselves at the public expense. These are the friends of the Moderates. Vote Progressive and protect your own property'.
