1926 General Strike

Post by Times Past »

Times Past is participating in the 90th anniversary of the 1926 General Strike but there is a dearth contemporary posters belonging to the Communist Party of Great Britain, The CPGB disbanded in 1991.

So that we can create a handeling collection where can their posters be found and what was the party logo in 1926. I have already trawled Google images and not much that is relevant to 1926 turned up, Iam looking only for their pamphlets and posters we dont need their booklets or internal correspondence.

Your best bet would be to go to any library in the former Battersea North constituency (which the Communists won in the 1924 general election) which is shown here as a map (to help you find such a library)

or failing that you could always go to Saklatvala Hall in the Southall district of Ealing which is used for meetings by the modern day Communist Party of Great Britain

You could always try La Columna they might have some stuff.
