Collecting Suffrage: This Is The House That Man Built

And this is the Minister weary and worn/Who treated the Suffragette with scorn,/Who wanted a 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.’

The Minister is surrounded by elegant suffragettes – with the House of Commons in the background. 

One in the BB Series of 6 postcards showing suffragettes in a dignified light.
