Joseph Chamberlain, MP, President of the Board of Trade, 1881

Joseph Chamberlain, MP, President of the Board of Trade, 1881. Chamberlain (1836-1914) began his career as a Liberal and a campaigner for educational reform, and became President of the Board of Trade in Gladstone's government formed in 1880. After disagreeing with Gladstone's plans to grant Irish Home Rule, Chamberlain left the Liberal Party. He formed an alliance with the Conservatives, as an imperialist and protectionist, and was made Colonial Secretary in 1895. In 1903 he resigned from the cabinet to lead the campaign for protectionist tariff reforms known as Imperial Preference. In 1906 Chamberlain suffered a severe stroke, bringing an end to his active involvement in politics. He was the father of Austen Chamberlain and Neville Chamberlain, both of whom also became MPs and cabinet ministers. From Men of Mark: a gallery of contemporary portraits of men distinguished in the Senate, the Church, in science, literature and art, the army, navy, law, medicine, etc. Photographed from life by Lock and Whitfield, with brief biographical notices by Thompson Cooper. (Conducted by G. C. Whitfield.) (London, 1876-1883)

Cross-roads, 1886. Artist: Joseph Swain

Cross-roads, 1886. The new Conservative Prime Minister, Lord Salisbury, pulls up at a crossroads. Two former Liberals, Lord Hartington, and, with the monocle, Joseph Chamberlain take the opportunity to climb down rather than proceed in the Conservative direction. This relates to the recent General Election which the Conservatives had won, partly through the disunity in the Liberal Party. If Gladstone could reunite his party, he would then have a majority in the House. Lord Hartington had refused to join the Conservative Cabinet, as had Joseph Chamberlain. From Punch, or the London Charivari, July 31, 1886
