Gems from the archive: David Lloyd George and other Liberals speaking at the 1929 general election

Back in the early 20th century, political parties used to record speeches and distribute gramophone copies around the country for replaying at local meetings. I recently came into possession of a set of such records from the 1929 general election and, with thanks to Pete Dollimore for his help, here now they are for the public to hear once again.

The speakers include David Lloyd George and the first female Liberal MP, Margaret Wintringham.
