This advertisement for 'England', the Conservative newspaper, is also publicising 'Primrose Day'. Benjamin Disraeli, British Prime Minister 1868 and 1874-80, died on April 19th 1881. Queen Victoria sent a wreath of primroses to his funeral, as they had been his favourite flowers. April 19th became Primrose Day to commemorate him.
