Election Campaigns:

2nd May 2015

As the UK gears up to the 2015 Election, we look back at a few past election campaign posters and ephemera – truly a sign of the times:

1900s
These three posters were published by the National Union of Conservative and Constitutional Associations (NUCCA; 1868-1911), in the lead up to the 1910 UK General Election.

PP0332_1_m  (“With apologies to Homocea” refers to a popular household remedy at the turn of the century for the treatment of haemorroids with the tagline “Touches the Spot”)

1928
Published by the American cultural left, this issue of New Masses features a constructivist style photomontage in the lead up to the 1928 US Presidential Election that asks: “What’s it all about?”

BA0209_3_m  (The text reads: “They call it a Presidential Election, but it’s a bloody farce. Pickets still go to jail, smaller nations are still oppressed, Labor is hungry, there’s a new world war coming, chorus girls get Rolls Royces, whoever succeeds Clammy Cal.”)

1929
Entitled “Volksbergehr” (People’s Desire), this poster was published for the 1929 German Referendum and features Adolf Hitler (1889-1945; leader of the Nazi Party), Alfred Hugenberg (1865-1951; leader of the DNVP German National People’s Party) and Franz Seldte (1882-1947; founder of the Stahlhelm Party).
