The Moderates Cling to the Trusts


Progressive Party poster from the London County Council Elections of 1907

This main feature of this poster is a large black and white cartoon depicting several caricatures of members of the Moderates sitting on a whale in the middle of an ocean. The whale is marked 'Trusts' and the figures on the whale hold banners proclaiming 'The Moderate Party supported by Trusts' and a newspaper entitled 'The Daily Liar'. To the right of the whale, in the distance, is land marked 'America' and on the left land marked England and London.
