    Scope and Content Note

    Chiefly campaign posters from the 1935-1936 British elections and post-war election in 1945. The 1935 posters are from both Labour Party and National Government and were collected in 1935-1936 by Professor Charles Aikin of U.C. Berkeley. To these have been added, from an unknown source, other British political posters that are believed to date from 1945. Both Liberal and Conservative posters are present.
