    Background: REPORTERS AND PHOTOGRAPHERS GATHERED OUTSIDE THE HOME IN HYDE PARK GATE, LONDON, THIRTIETH OF NOVEMBER, TO CATCH A BIRTHDAY GLIMPSE OF SIR WINSTON CHURCHILL, GRAND OLD MAN OF BRITISH PARLIAMENTARIANS.

    EARLY IN THE DAY THE POSTMAN BROUGHT BIRTHDAY GREETINGS BY LETTER AND CABLE FROM THE FOUR CORNERS OF THE EARTH.

    AMONG THE MANY GIFTS WAS A BASKET OF FLOWERS ...AND A CASE OF CHAMPAGNE.

    JUST BEFORE THREE O'CLOCK IN THE AFTERNOON, SIR WINSTON LEFT HIS HOME, ACCOMPANIED BY LADY CHURCHILL, AND DROVE TO THE HOUSES OF PARLIAMENT, WHERE HE RECEIVED A WONDERFUL WELCOME FROM POLITICIANS OF BOTH PARTIES.
