CHARTING CHURCHILL, 1874 – 1965
Part 4, The Wilderness Years, 1929 – 1939
On November 30th 2014, Sir Winston Churchill’s 140th birthday, Haute Vitrine started publishing images from the series THE CHURCHILL PHOTOGRAPHS by Leslie Hossack.
The previous post marked the end of Part 4, The Wilderness Years, 1929 – 1939. During this time, Sir Winston Churchill’s political career was at a stand still; he continued to serve as the Member of Parliament for Epping, but for ten long years he was not a member of the cabinet. Photographs featured in Part 4, The Wilderness Years, 1929 – 1939 can be reviewed below.
To view the photographs from Part 1, The Early Years, 1874 – 1892; Part 2, The Defining Years, 1892 – 1908; and Part 3, The Political Years, 1908 – 1929, please visit the Haute Vitrine posts of November 30th through December 31st 2014.
