by CHURCHILL , WINSTON
Prime Minister Churchill, shown seated with his right arm resting on the edge of his Cabinet table and facing directly into the camera, has signed on the original mount, "Winston S. Churchill. He had apparently written the date as "1943," then crossed out "3" and changed it to "4" suggesting he signed the photograph in early 1944. Stoneman made the well known war time image for the national Photographic Record at the Cabinet Office on April 1, 1941. Churchill would give out this image, typically in smaller format, to those who worked for him during the war. Condition: a few fingermarks and some silvering, with pinhead size break at upper left corner; some soiling to mount and slight wear at corners. Exceptional in size for this well known war time photograph.
