Winston S. Churchill bust


At The Teheran Conference, November 28, 1943


By: Frank Cancellare (Photographer)
Date: 1943
Published: Acme Newspictures
Size (Details): 9 3/4 x 7 3/4 inches

Category: Photographs of Winston Churchill
From: Churchill at Chartwell
Item Number: 207724

Description: This original gelatin print (9 3/4 x 7 3/4 inches) captures Churchill, Roosevelt and Stalin at the Soviet Embassy on November 28, 1943, the opening day of their first joint conference in Teheran. Molotov, Averell Harriman and Anthony Eden stand behind them. President Roosevelt is clearly in full flow, to Churchill's fascination, if not astonishment.

The print, on substantial photo card stock, has a handwritten caption in ink on the verso with the names of the three statesmen and a notation: "Yalta Conference 1944 or Teheran?"

The print is in excellent condition, with miniscule tape residue on the verso, not affecting the image.

FRANK CANCELLARE was, for 52 years, a press photographer with Acme Newspictures, United Press and United Press International, beginning as a "squeegie boy" in a New York darkroom and retiring as the prize-winning dean of White House photographers. His most famous image was the picture of Harry Truman holding aloft a copy of The Chicago Tribune incorrectly declaring Thomas Dewey the winner of the 1948 presidential election.
