"From Charles I to Harold Wilson: A Glimpse into the World of Members of Parliament" Step back in time with these captivating images that offer a fascinating insight into the lives of Members of Parliament throughout history. In the 17th century, we witness Speaker Lenthall bravely standing up to King Charles I, asserting parliamentary authority and setting a precedent for future generations. Meanwhile, an intriguing 18th-century artwork reveals a secret smoking club where political alliances were forged over puffs of tobacco. Fast forward to Sir Robert Walpole's administration in the 18th century, as depicted in an engraved image capturing the bustling House of Commons during his tenure. Here, decisions that shaped nations were made amidst heated debates and passionate arguments. Meet John Fuller, an English philanthropist whose dedication to social causes left an indelible mark on society. His portrait serves as a reminder that MPs have long been champions for positive change within their communities. But it wasn't all serious business; even parliamentarians had moments of levity. Bank notes from France caused alarm among British citizens - poor John Bull. Yet amidst political turmoil, there were also lighter occasions such as the opening ceremony of Parliament in 1886 when pomp and pageantry took center stage. Delve further into historical curiosities with "The Twin Stars, " showcasing Castor and Pollux published by Hannah Humphrey in 1799. This whimsical piece reminds us that MPs are not only politicians but also patrons of art and culture. Witness Mr Barran's generosity through an engraving depicting a fountain presented by him at Roundhay Park in Leeds – proof that MPs can leave lasting legacies beyond their legislative achievements. Travel back to the late 17th century with Peter Lely's exquisite portrait capturing Sir John Nicholas' dignified presence – emblematic of MP’s influence and power during this era. Experience firsthand the intensity within The House Of Commons during a debate in 1858.
