    Purchased this from the caretaker of the man who took this photo. Sadly the man who took this photo died a couple years ago in a rural NH town. I have had it authenticated by a forensic handwriting examiner. It is amazing to hold this and think about owning a one of a kind piece of WWII, US, and English history.

      You have a wonderful piece of history.

      This is the photograph used on the front cover of the book "Makers of Naval Policy, 1798-1947" by Robert Greenhalgh Albion, Rowena Reed, Photographer. Here is the book on Amazon:

      This photograph of Roosevelt and Churchill meeting in 1941 off the coast of Newfoundland is shown with signature variations on the worldwariimuseum dot com site:

      solver, there are a few similar ones in existence. That fact was confirmed by Heritage Auctions.

      I just recently remember, finding a picture like this in some of my father's estate item's, that we were going through, also several pictures of him and Carl Brashear, he was the focus of the movie Men of Honor...Will try to get my sister to scan them and try to post....Maybe I will get the pictures when all is settled....Very Cool!!!

      Are the photographs signed?

      I don't remember about the one with Churchill & Roosevelt....But the ones of my Dad and Carl aren't...They were just pictures of them on one of the ship's they were on together....He was a close friend of my Dad's, I actually met him several times when I was little...

      You should post the photos on this website with the story.

      I am a photo collector and thought that I saw it on ebay a while ago.

      It is treasure.
