Winston Churchill Speaking in Parliament

from Putnam's Magazine - 1908.
Just had to share this 1908 caricature of Winston Churchill.  it's a great picture of him speaking in the House of Commons.  1908 was also the year Churchill married Clementine Hozier.  That same year he became President of the Board of Trade - a position he held until 1910.

Note the stern expression on Churchill's face, and his fists on the trunk.  One can only guess what subject he was addressing.
