West Ward Labour candidate William Joseph Allen with a baby outside the polling station at St Matthew’s School on Mount St, on the day of the 1937 local council elections. His family told us that he did not have a baby at this time, so we think it may have been borrowed for this classic ‘kissing the baby’ type election photograph.
