Collection Of Postcards Relating To Suffragettes And Women’s Rights

c1900s-1968. Consisting of 30 lithographs and 2 vintage silver gelatin photographs, in postcard format, some signed in image, most postmarked with date verso, sizes range from 13.6 x 8.5cm to 9.5 x 16.4cm. Minor creases, foxing or paper loss.

Artists include Phil May, Donald McGill, Reg Carter, Alfred Leete, Fred Spurgin, John Hassall, and “Spatz.” Cards mostly present the suffragette movement in a comical, light-hearted tone, while others are explicitly anti-suffragism, such as one 1914 card that exclaims “It’s not a vote you want – it’s a bloke.”

Also included in the collection are postcards of “The Saloon Smasher” Carrie Nation; a 1968 envelope celebrating the 50th anniversary of the suffragette movement; and two photographic postcards showing Mr George Lashwood, comedian, “amongst the girls”, and the Crediton Carnival of 1908 (Devon, England) in which a number of men are dressed as suffragettes.

This collection includes a rare complete set of six postcards with envelope by Spatz entitled “When we fly.” Three of the postcards relate to the suffragette movement.

A detailed list and full visual record are available upon request.
