Morley Grange, Prime Minister, Herbert Henry Asquith and his daughter at a garden party
24th July 1913. Photograph taken at Morley Grange, Elland Road, where a garden party is taking place in honour of the Prime Minister, Herbert Henry Asquith, centre. His daughter, Violet, is seated beside him holding a bouquet of flowers. The Mayor of Morley, William Law Ingle is standing behind Mr. Asquith and the Mayoress, his wife, Janet Ingle is seated beside the Prime Minister. Their small grand-daughter, Nancy, is placed next to Miss Asquith. Standing in front of the left-hand door pillar, and wearing a top hat, is Alderman Sam Rhodes, who was four times Mayor of Morley. The long-serving Morley Town Clerk, Fred Thackray, is on the second row, fourth from the right. It is said that, due to fear of demonstration by suffragettes who strongly disliked Mr. Asquith's policies, over 200 policemen were deployed around the house during his stay there. Research by Ronnie Barraclough. Photograph form the David Atkinson Archive.
