"Suffragist" Tent Show Banner - So Named for Suffragette Emily Davidson Who Threw Herself Under The King's Horse at the 1913 Epsom Derby

Here's a great piece of folk art obviously influenced by Emily Davidson, who incredibly threw herself under the horse of the King of England in the fight for Women's Voting Rights in both the U.S. and in Great Britain. There is controversy as to whether the suffragette who sought women's voting rights meant to die or not. Wonderful piece of folk art, this canvas banner is of the type used at side shows, carnivals and tent shows of the era. One of the more unusual and historical horse racing pieces we have seen. NOTE: A to-be-released as of this writing 2015 film entitled "Suffragette" tells the story of the fight for voting rights for women at the time. Interestingly, a scene in the film's trailer shows Miss Davidson's very act of civil disobedience which took her life for the struggle.
