Click image to enlarge.

In 1896 the Socialist International met in London. Edward Aveling was in charge of its organisation. His partner, Eleanor Marx, (daughter of Karl) was secretary of the ‘Hotels Committee’, which meant the delegates’ accommodation. In charge of printing and publicity was H.A. Barker, who had formed an early Socialist organisation, the Labour Union. Barker wrote to Walter Crane, the Socialist artist to design the delegates’ admission card, ‘knowing that our cause is your cause, we feel certain that if time permits, you will once more lend the heavy gift of your unrivalled art to the world’s toilers.’
