Winston Churchill, 1941
In May 1941, during what turned out to be the last major attack of the Blitz, German bombs destroyed the debating chamber of the House of Commons. A member of Parliament told Churchill not to be distressed by the results stating, "Such ruins are good assets: all round the globe, and especially in America." This photograph was republished shortly before Churchill's death.
