This is a Sir Winston Churchill clipping that I scanned from a 1953 publication celebrating Queen Elizabeth II coronation.
This Sir Winston Churchill clipping is a very clear image, with a small tribute to the former British prime minister at the bottom of the page.
The picture is so clear that there really was no need for me to re-touch the small imperfections so I left it as is.
- Winston Churchill was an accomplished artist. He created more than 500 paintings over a 48 year period.
- Churchill was half American. His father, Randolph Churchill, was a British politician and his mother, Jennie Jerome, was an American socialite.
- Churchill served in British Parliament under six monarchs: Victoria, Edward VII, George V, Edward VIII, George VI and Elizabeth II.
