Wigan Council has secured funding to protect 141 posters from the 1910 election.
The funding from the National Manuscript Conservation Trust and the Pilgrim Trust will allow the council to restore and digitise the posters
Alex Miller, lead officer for archives and local studies at Wigan Council said: 'This collection is of national, as well as local importance. It includes electoral campaign material that has not survived elsewhere and helps to chart the history of our democracy.'?
The posters illustrate issues such as reform of the House of Lords, free trade, the rights of working people and Irish Home rule.
