© British Humanist Association

This photograph was taken at a dinner in memory Charles Bradlaugh in c.1910. Bradlaugh will be best remembered for having founded the National Secular Society, which he did in 1866, and his pioneering work to make artificial contraception widely available to those of all classes. Dinner guest included George Bernard Shaw, his wife Charlotte Shaw and Bradlaugh’s daughter Hypatia Bradlaugh Bonner. Top marks for anyone who can spot them. (Clue: they are hiding on the back row..)
