I recently returned from a trip to England which included visits to the British Museum, the Tower of London, and Blenheim Palace. So I
was more than interested to read that I just missed the introduction, at Blenheim Palace, of the new 5 pound polymer note bearing the
portrait of Sir Winston Churchill.
The portrait of Churchill on the note bears a remarkable resemblance to the photograph of Churchill taken by the Canadian Armenian
photographer Yousuf Karsh on Dec. 30, 1941. Can anyone confirm that the note was modeled on Karsh's photograph?
Good question. I haven't seen this topic addressed. Can anyone help? -Editor
