Photograph by Edward Frederick Foley
Original studio print of a photograph of Winston S. Churchill taken by Edward Frederick Foley, signed by both Churchill and the photographer in 1932
New York: E. F. Foley, 1932. Photograph. This is a scarce and compelling inter-war photograph portrait of Winston S. Churchill captured by E. F. Foley, signed by both the photographer and Churchill. The gelatin silver print image measures 7.75 x 5.625 inches (19.69 x 14.29 cm) on a 10 x 8 inch (25.4 x 20.32 cm) sheet. Foley signed just below the lower right corner of the image “E. F.
