[Manchester?:: n. p.,, ca. 1838-1846].. Small perhaps one-eighth inch light red stain to the engraved banner; overall dust soiling; in good, sound condition.. Broadside on card stock, approx. 4.5 x 6 inches. Engraved vignette, "Stephenson & Royston Del. & Sc. An attractive ephemeral relic of the political fight against trade restrictions on grains in England, an important early free trade movement, here decorated with an engraved vignette of a starving family (including a babe at the breast) gazing upward upon a banner inscribed with the device, "Give us this day our daily bread." The National Anti-Corn-Law League was an early example of organizing labor for social and political ends (for instance, see Pickering & Tyrell's The people's bread: a history of the Anti-Corn Law League, where Brindle gets passing mention for his role in the parallel Manchster local Anti-Corn-Law Association, which evidently acted as a means to distance the League from controversial political decisions).
