Original Large Photograph of Arthur Griffith and Éamon de Valera showing De Valera with Arthur Griffith, both standing at the Mansion House, possibly at the Peace Conference, 4 July 1921. 167 x 217mm. Small nick to margin. Near fine.
There was an element of tension between De Valera and Griffith since the Sinn Féin Ardfheis of 1917, when De Valera’s supporters nominated him as President, the position previously held by Griffith. Photographs showing the two together are scarce.
