Acme. Churchills Arrive in U.S. for Vacation, 1946
Churchill's 1946 trip to the United States mixed business and pleasure. After arriving on January 14, he renewed old friendships, painted, swam in the ocean, and visited Cuba. He also lobbied for an American reconstruction loan for Britain, began negotiations for arrangements to publish his wartime memoir, and made a series of speeches on important topics. He and Clementine are shown here as they disembark from the Cunard liner Queen Elizabeth in New York.
