Unpublished Photograph of Sir Winston Churchill

I have a vast and eclectic digital archive. As I was going through it, I re-discovered an image of a scanned slide. It is of Sir Winston Churchill on a post-war visit to Canada. To amuse his nibs, Churchill was taken on a little fishing trip along with Lady Churchill to Lac Jacques Cartier in the Laurentides Provincial Park of Quebec near Quebec City.

In this photograph, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police security detail (one man in a fedora hat) looks on as Churchill shoves off in a boat.

Lady Churchill rummages through her purse up front in the small boat. She is quite nattily and stylishly dressed for a simple fishing trip.

This photograph of Sir Winston and Lady Churchill has never been published before.
