These are a few photos from the College that hosts the Winston Churchill Memorial and Museum (Churchill is perhaps the only British Prime Minister with a Memorial and Museum in the United States). I’m going to put the other photos from the Museum on Picasa whenever I can.

Along with short films, photos, and some other artifacts that tie this college to Winston Churchill, we also saw a replica of the Berlin Wall which the Prime Minister had referenced in his “Iron Curtain” speech. The “wall” had striking similarities to the real one, and had graffitis and other paintings on it.

At the time of the speech at Westminster in 1946, Churchill had seen far ahead of his many peers as it regards the ambition of the Soviet Union, but it would take years for the rest of the world to catch up.
