1909c – Postcard of Primrose League Fete


This photograph was donated to the Braziers for the exhibition in 1971, either by Cyril Sladden or Juliet Sladden (the only two of eight Sladden siblings still living).

The text at the bottom of the photo says:  “Lord Coventry and other speakers at the Primrose League Fete”.  Julius Sladden was a prominent member of the Primrose League (founded in 1883, an organisation for spreading Conservative principles).  Someone has written on the back, “probably about 1906 or 1907”, but it may have been in 1909 when a Primrose League Fete was held at Abbey Manor, Evesham, on 11th August 1909, with Lord and Lady Coventry present.
