'Waiting for the Verdict', 1865. Lord Derby (left) and Disraeli represent the Conservatives who awaited the verdict of the country following the 1865 General Election. The ballot papers are heaped on the table but a lengthy spell in opposition looks set to continue. In fact, the Liberal Party was returned with an increased majority of 78. From Punch, or the London Charivari, July 22, 1865.
