"THE HOUSE" that man built: Minister

Dublin Core


"THE HOUSE" that man built: Minister


This is "THE HOUSE" that man built,
And this is the Minister weary and worn
Who treated the Suffragette with scorn,
Who wanted to Vote, and (a saying to quote),
Dared him to tread on the tail of the coat
Of the bold Suffragette determined to get,
Into "The House" that man built.

[Image: Part of a series of six pro-suffrage postcards, labeled Series No. E. 23, based on the children's rhyme, "This is the house that Jack built." All of the cards refer to the British Houses of Parliament.

On the verso, the card is addressed to Miss F. Bullt Orion Cottage Newington N. Folkestone Kent, and postmarked July 15, 1909. The handwritten message reads: "Many thanks for letter will write on Sunday. I am in the best of health, but Limper suffers slightly know, love to all / I'm going to turn suffragette/ Adieu A.S.B.]
