Vote for John Lumsden

This is an election poster for my great-grandfather that was discovered recently in the attic of my parents' house. John Lumsden was a plasterer by trade, as were quite a few of his descendants, but until seeing this I knew nothing else about him.

He gets my vote, 80 years later.

  1. John Lumsden received 611 first preference votes in the election, a respectable total though not enough to be elected.
