Mr & Mrs Mandeville

Mr and Mrs Mandeville

Alexis Moreton Mandeville was the Liberal candidate for the 1906 general election standing in the Newark constituency. His single opponent, Conservative, John Starkey, won by a majority of 328 votes (4,772/4,444 - 51.8%/48.2%).

I'm not sure where this is taken, the arch looks like it could be the front of the Saracens Head and the drain pipe also matches that supposition. The car I believe is a French Lorraine-Dietrich.

This is the reverse of the above card and is dated June 20th 1945. Presumably Alfred just used it as and it was a convient to do so and no longer had any commercial value. It must have been sitting around in his care for 39 years!
