"Winston Churchill, Britain's Man of Action. Winston Churchill, again First Lord of the Admiralty as again Britian embarks on a war of Germany, may become England's man of the hour as well as being England's man of action.With the war less than a week old, there is talk that he will be England's Prime Minister if and when Neville Chamberlain finds the burdens of war and age weighting too heavily. Churchill is pictured here as he made a speech in the later days of the [First] World War."

The photograph is in very good condition, with faint creases and some warping along the upper right and lower edges. The verso is backstamped "Acme News Pictures" and "Sep 14 1939."
