[ORIGINAL WWI PHOTOGRAPH OF LLOYD GEORGE SPEAKING TO WOUNDED SOLDIERS AT CLIVEDEN HOSPITAL, UK]

Cliveden, England: 1918 (June). Original photograph, 205 x 150 mm (very good condition); affixed to embossed cardstock, 300 x 250 mm (corners worn and partially defective). Very good. Item #3806

Little-known (possibly unpublished) photograph of David Lloyd George as Prime Minister, taken at Clevedon Hospital, the temporary relief center for wounded soldiers that had been established by the Astors on behalf of the Canadian Red Cross.

Lloyd George directs a confrontational glare at the camera, surely mindful that the War Office did not want to publicize the growing population of wounded men.

It is possible that the photographer was G.M. (or S.M.) Fenwick, who in two instances wrote on the cardstock frame requesting that the photograph be returned to him/her at 501 W 121st Street, New York City: this was not a private residence, but in fact it was Columbia University housing. Therefore Fenwick was surely a student, and probably American, as Lloyd George is referred to as the "Premier of England" and not as Prime Minister.

Price: $150.00
