A unique archive of unpublished black and white photographs, taken on the occasion of Sir Winston Churchill's 74th Birthday, in 1948. Sir Winston is seen with members of his family, riding with the Old Surrey and Burstow Hunt, outside Chartwell farm, adjacent to Churchill's home of Chartwell, Westerham. The photographs give a snap shot of the last occasion Churchill took to horseback. This series of over fifty photo's show Churchill standing in the porch of the farm, Clementine, and a very young Nicolas Soames, who had been born in Feb of that year. A number of pictures show the stable yards well as various out buildings around Chartwell.
In 1947 the year Churchill's eldest daughter Mary married Christopher Soames, by coincidence Chartwell farm had come up for sale, so Sir Winston brought it for the newly weds, where they spent the next ten years bringing up four of their five children.
The photograph's were taken by a local professional photographer George P King, based in Sevenoaks, and mark Sir Winston's birthday.
