Footnotes

  • George Ward Hunt (30 July 1825 – 29 July 1877), pictured as a young boy in the present lot, was a British Conservative Party politician and statesman, Chancellor of the Exchequer and First Lord of the Admiralty to Benjamin Disraeli. It is reputed that when Hunt presented his first and only Budget speech to parliament he left the Chancellor's Red Box at home. This is said to be the start of the tradition that, when a Chancellor leaves for the House of Commons on Budget Day, he shows the assembled crowd the box by holding it aloft.
