EDITORS COMMENTS
"This evocative image captures the historic moment of a gentleman drawing his first old age pension on January 1, 1909, at the local post office. The Old Age Pension Act, introduced by David Lloyd George, was a groundbreaking social welfare legislation that allowed weekly payments to be made to all those who had qualified for the benefit. Prior to this act, the elderly poor had to rely on charitable organizations or their families for support. In this scene, the gentleman, dressed in a smart suit and hat, carefully draws out a wad of notes from the post office clerk, signifying the beginning of a new era of financial security for the elderly population. The Old Age Pension Act was a significant step towards the modern welfare state and marked a turning point in the history of social policy in Britain. This photograph, with its authentic and nostalgic feel, is a poignant reminder of the impact of this legislation on the lives of millions of elderly people, providing them with a sense of dignity and financial independence." This image is a historical record of a typical scene on January 1, 1909, and is not related to any commercial use. It is available for rights-managed licensing from Mary Evans Picture Library.
