Breakthrough at the Churchill Memorial

Winston Churchill delivered his famous Sinews of Peace Speech at this church on March 5, 1946. It was in this speech that Churchill used the phrase "the iron curtain." The church was designed by Sir Christopher Wren and was moved to the campus of Westminster College in Fulton, Missouri in the 1960s. The National Churchill Memorial is located below the church. The Breakthrough Sculpture, using panels from the Berlin Wall was dedicated in 1990.

    How fantastic to have a piece of 'cold war' history close by. Wonderful perspective, great contrasts and very well composed too.

    Yeah, I really like how you composed this photograph; the frame within the frame. ...and having the grafitti in juxtaposition to the historic is very cool.
