        Salvation Army Social Campaign propaganda poster, London, c.1910

        English School, (20th century). Medium: chromolithograph. Date: c.1910. In Darkest England and the Way Out. A broadside on the Salvation Army's scheme to redress the social evils afflicting England; with a lithograph printed in colour, showing in the foreground a stormy sea ("Ocean of Misery") with a ship-wreck, the survivors being pulled from the sea by members of the Salvation Army and guided to an utopian England with solutions for all social problems; with lithographic titles, inscriptions, and Key to the chart in two columns. This chart is a pictorial representation of the benefits envisaged from the application of the Salvation Army's scheme for dealing with the social problems of `Darkest England', as described in William Booth's book "In Darkest England and the Way Out" (first publ.1890), in which the chart was published. The ultimate solution to England's problems was emigration to the colonies. Provenance: Private Collection.
