Old Winston would be proud

In 1958, the local Montevideo government erected a monument to Winston Churchill near Pocitos Beach. He looks grim, as if the Germans were coming again.


The monument is in a nice, small square, looking to the beach (and to the storms, where they choose to visit).


Some words by Mansfield are transcribed below the bust. I believe old Winston, while he did care for words, would better appreciate a gin and tonic in our 30 C summer.  


What Winston is looking at: Pocitos Beach.


Thanks for looking! Yes it is film. FP4+ in DK-50 1:1 (testing old mix).
