English term or phrase: on many a modest wall
Michels also noted the tendency for the new mass movements to venerate leader-figures, though he made too much of it. For the admiration which undoubtedly tended to surround some leaders of national mass movements, and which was embodied on many a modest wall in portraits of Gladstone, the Grand Old Man of Liberalism, or Bebel, the leader of German social democracy, in our period reflected the cause which united the faithful rather than the man himself.

Explanation:
Čini mi se da modest wall znači zidovi skromnih domova,
tj označava u najširem smislu obične ljude i obične kuće. U ovomm delu
teksta naglasak je nekako na tome da nacionalni lideri imaju
široku podršku, pa se tako njihovi porteti nalaze ne samo
u institucijama i domovima više klase, funkcionera, već i u kući,
na zidu, dodje mi da kazem nekog jadnika. Kao slika Staljina
u domu Cvorovica.
Pa tako na srpskom može biti možda "portreti na zidovima mnogih skromnih domova" ili
"portreti u kućama mnogih običnih ljudi".
