Lot Details
[CHURCHILL, WINSTON. 1874-1965.]
Album containing 15 gelatin silver prints, 9 1/8 x 7 inches, [1946], inserted into corner mounts, some with handwritten captions, leather covers stamped and ruled in gilt, 2 album leaves empty, worn at corners and edges.
Provenance: estate of Field Marshall H.M. Wilson, an official member of Churchill's party during his visit.

A collection of photographs documenting the March 1946 visit of Sir Winston and Lady Churchill and General Dwight D. and Mrs. Eisenhower to the recently restored colonial capital of Williamsburg, Virginia. The album includes several remarkably candid photographs showing the Prime Minister smoking a long pipe, at cocktails with Eisenhower, touring the village in a horse-drawn carriage, and riding in the backseat of a car with Eisenhower and John D. Rockefeller III (whose family funded the restoration). Photos also feature Lady Churchill, Sarah Churchill, and Mrs. Eisenhower, Field Marshall H.M. Wilson and other members of the parties at various locations around Williamsburg.
