Notes

Margaret Thatcher's own copy of the official cabinet photograph taken January 1985, signed by herself and every other member of the cabinet. The photograph was kept by Thatcher until her death in 2013, and here appears on the market for the first time after acquisition directly from her estate. 1985 was a strong year for Thatcher, with her authority barely contestable; the miners' strike was finally defeated in March, and the Anglo-Irish Agreement was signed in November. The photograph consequently offers a snapshot of Thatcher at her apogee, with a cabinet in her own image, near-unanimously loyal and united, with the few remaining dissenters doing little to undermine her position.
