Liberal Party meeting, Conkwell Grange

A Liberal Party rally at Conkwell Grange in 1910. The big neo-baroque house was only three years old at the time and had been built for James Thornton, to the design of the architect Sir Edward Guy Dawber (1861-1838) at an estimated cost of £25-30,000. It is now at the centre of an estate of 300 acres mostly devoted to woodland and horses.
