In this photograph, David Lloyd George is around 16 years old. After passing the preliminary examinations of the Law Society he found employment in the office of solicitors Breese, Jones and Casson in Porthmadog in 1878. Here he began to become active in politics. After friction in the office in Porthmadog he established his own office in Cricieth in 1885 and in the same year we find him taking a leading part in the general election in the Meirionnydd constituency as a Liberal. The following year he nailed his radical colours to the mast by sharing the platform in a public meeting at Blaenau Ffestiniog with the Irish nationalist, Michael Davitt, and the Welsh nationalist, the Revd Michael D Jones.
