The earliest political glass cinema slide in the NFSA’s collection for Nationalist Party member, Dr Robert Stopford. Stopford served as Member for Balmain in the New South Wales Legislative Assembly from 1922 to 1925, after unsuccessfully contesting the seat in 1917 and 1920. The slide is simple in its approach, with a black and white profile of Dr Stopford, his party and the key issues he stood for. There are no bright colours or slogans to distract. Rather Dr Stopford relied on his high profile in the community, specifically his humanitarian work promoting child and maternal health, running a clinic for slum children and advocating for the introduction of a state medical service.
