Political Cartoons - "The Unequal Race", 1874

This cartoon, 'The unequal race', depicts the contest and result for the Inverness Burghs seat at the general election of 1874. The constituency comprised the burghs of Inverness, Nairn, Forres, and Fortrose.

The result of the election was:
Charles Fraser MacKintosh (independent Liberal) 1134
Eneas MacKintosh of Raigmore (Liberal) 879
MacKintosh of Holme (Conservative) 16.

In the election as a whole the Liberals, led by William Gladstone, won a majority of the votes cast, but Benjamin Disraeli's Conservatives secured a majority of seats in the House of Commons, largely because they won a number of uncontested seats
