This is the first glimpse of a collection of election posters which are to be preserved for future generations thanks to a grant.

Dozens of posters from political campaigns more than 100 years ago are part of a series of 141 pieces connected to the 1910 general elections, 55 of which are linked to Wigan in addition to neighbouring Newton and Chorley.
