A Piece Of History

The 1906 card sent in the days following the General Election opens a small window on a piece of British History. The election was significant because of the great expansion of the number of seats won by the Labour Party making them a force within parliament. One of those seats was won by William Tyson Wilson, a man that most people had never heard of. He was a carpenter by trade and not a rich man. But he was a man of the working people.
