A Signed Photograph of Right Hon. Stanley Baldwin, 1932

Measurements: Overall: 33cmcm (13in) x 26cm (10in)



Black and white full length image of the Prime Minister in the robes of the Chancellor of Oxford University. Framed and glazed.

Stanley Baldwin, 1st Earl Baldwin (1867-1947) was British Prime Minister during the interwar crises of General Strike in 1926, Edward VIII’s Abdication in 1936, and during the period of appeasement until his retirement in 1937. However his most notable position was his support of parliamentary democracy during times when revolution and dictatorship were common European experiences. In the 1920s he sought to prevent class conflict and mix the Labour movement into the party system and, in the 1930s, he became an international figure in the defence of democratic and Christian values. As the threat from Nazi Germany became obvious, he accepted the need to arm again and introduced new defence programmes each year from 1934 to 1937, against Labour and Liberal opposition - facts that undermine his post-1939 reputation as a guilty man who failed to resist Hitler.
