Description: The typed paper caption (misdated "3/12/43" -- the correct date is 3/12/46), reads:
"Hyde Park, NY - Carrying a wreath of rhododendron leaves and gardenias, fastened at the top with a large white ribbon, Winston Churchill solemnly walks to the grave of Franklin D. Roosevelt. He laid the wreath carefully on top of the evergreens, then stepped back and stood with bowed head contemplating the white marble monument the late president designed himself. It was Britain's wartime Prime Minister's first visit to Hyde Park since the death of the President less than a year ago. Following Churchill is Mrs. Franklin D. Roosevelt and Mrs. Churchill."

President Roosevelt died April 12, 1945. Churchill visited the U.S. the following year to deliver his "Iron Curtain" speech in Fulton, Missouri.

The photograph is in very good condition, with faint scratches and creases. The verso is stamped: "ACME Newspictures, Inc."
