Councillor R. White

Member of the Electric Lighting and Tramways Committee, West Ham.

Our image comes from Wikipedia's photo captioned 'First West Ham Borough Council, 1886-7'. This 'Councillor R. White' is probably our man.

The Socialist Standard, October 1904 in a piece about West Ham includes the text: "These men are supporting Alderman White, a Liberal Passive-Resister, who is a candidate at the forthcoming municipal elections, because, forsooth, “he is in sympathy with Labour.”
