Election Literature, 1874: Poster advertising a meeting of the supporters of Charles Fraser MacKintosh

This poster advertises "a meeting of the friends of Charles Fraser MacKintosh" in the school-room at Clachnaharry during the General Election campaign of 1874 in which Fraser MacKintosh was a candidate.

The result of the election for the Inverness Burghs seat (comprising Inverness, Nairn, Forres, and Fortrose) was:
Fraser MacKintosh (independent Liberal) 1134
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
