About this work

Description

They are wearing top hats and tails and are walking along a pavement covered with snow. The second man from the left is Gladstone, and the second man from the right appears to be Sir William Harcourt. The man on the far left may be Hugh Childers. The man on the right with waxed mustachios has not been identified. They are also portrayed in a Tom Merry print of 18 December 1886, 'Scenes of the Liberal Union. Incorrigibles discharged' (Wellcome Library no. 565060i). In view of the mention of "union", they might be Liberal Unionists who broke away from the Liberals in 1886, but they do not resemble the best known Unionists such as Lord Hartington or Goschen
