[Stoneham?]: (Prohibition Party), [1886?]. Broadside. 4.75" x 12.50" Fine. Printed on one side. There is an old crease from being folded in half once across the short dimension. The date of the 1886 election is penned at the bottom edge in a small, contemporaneous hand.

Lothrop ran as the Prohibition candidate for Governor of Massachusetts in both 1885 and 1886, losing both times. Handsomely printed broadside with the town of Stoneham identified at top margin. OCLC notes only one other copy of a similar Prohibition broadside from this election--from Medford, Massachusetts.
