Charting Churchill: The Early Years, 1874 – 1892
by Leslie Hossack
Part 1, The Early Years, 1874 – 1892
On November 30th 2014, Sir Winston Churchill’s 140th birthday, Haute Vitrine started publishing images from the series THE CHURCHILL PHOTOGRAPHS by Leslie Hossack.
Yesterday’s post marked the end of Part 1, The Early Years, 1874 – 1892. During this time, Sir Winston Churchill’s boyhood at Blenheim Palace and schooldays at Harrow shaped the adult he would become. Photographs featured in Part 1, The Early Years can be reviewed below.
Leslie Hossack’s CHARTING CHURCHILL will continue into January 2015, the month that marks the 50th anniversary of the death of Sir Winston Churchill.
