Keir Hardie - 100 years on

A set of books given to Keir Hardie


These books were given to Hardie by Emmeline Pankhurst when he embarked on his 1907 World Tour.  Hardie was a supporter of the women's suffrage movement.


The books are 'Felix Holt' and 'Essays' by George Elliot. Pankhurst has inscribed the books "From EPG - F.K.H with sincerest hopes for a happy voyage and a safe return, July 1907".
