  • A rare and early signed photograph of Winston Churchill, one of the most significant world leaders of the 20th century

Winston Churchill (1874 –1965) was a politician and statesman who twice served as British Prime Minister, and is regarded as one of the most influential people in British history.

Churchill led Britain to victory against Nazi Germany during WWII, with his regular speeches and broadcasts inspiring resistance against Adolf Hitler during the darkest days of the conflict.

In 1963 he became the first person to be declared an honorary citizen of the United States, and following his death in 1965 he was granted a state funeral by Queen Elizabeth II to mark his service to the nation.

In addition to his political career, Churchill was a renowned writer and was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1953.

This signed photographic postcard depicts Winston Churchill, then a young MP aged 30, seated at his desk.

 

The photograph was taken in 1904, the year that Churchill absconded to the Liberal Party from the Conservatives.

 

Signed boldly across the lower border "Winston S. Churchill" in black fountain pen ink.

 

Photograph measures approximately 5.5" and is unframed.

 

In very good condition, slight wear to edges.

 

An attractive early image of the future Prime Minister.

 

Provenance: ex Stanley Gibbons.
