'A Grammar Lesson' from 1919
A lovely piece of political ephemera - bought from Bob Jones's bookstall, set up today at QMC at Mile End.
This was published by the Independent Labour Party in 1919 - and was a simple but very effective endeavour to show the meaning, and the limits, of public ownership.
'Our Coal Mines' but 'My Garden' ... 'Our Railways' but 'Your Clothes' ... 'Our Land' but 'My Religious Beliefs'.
And: 'Our Government (which we can change when we wish).'
A leaflet more than ninety years old and in wondrously good condition.
