Help with identifying English establishment figures..

Post by Mark Griffin »

Came across this weird thing and wanted to put it into context. Don't know the publication sadly., Just wondering if its commemorating an election maybe?

Pretty sure its the Election, a biggie that year and the govt lost a confidence vote. I can spot Randolph Churchill far right and I think its Richard Burton in the exotic stuff on the left. His Arabian knights translation came out that year. Lots of other worthies in there.

Maxime Chouinard has done a lot of research on the C19th tournament scene which he details here- http://hemamisfits.com/2014/12/20/the-f ... omment-875

That's great stuff, the 1777 one I wasn't aware of. Bear in mind that my pic is a political satire, it never happened. More research at my end shows that after Khartoum the govt lost a vote of no confidence in the spring and in the autumn, after a pretty lively contest, a new lot came in.
