Collectible museum-grade fine art print, hand-printed in England and individually finished with a monogram emboss. Each sale directly supports the artisan. Listed dimensions include a white border for easy framing.


The colorization is based on a glass plate gifted by the American Red Cross, depicting recovering U.S. soldiers sightseeing at Armistice. The group is posing in front of a London General Omnibus Company B-Type bus on the western side of Parliament Square: with Westminster Hall, the Palace of Westminster and Big Ben behind them.

This shot in particular was just spectacular and I knew I had to do it. It happily coincided with filming for France’s national television station TF1, so we shot the segment on location between groups of (ironically French) tourists. The view remains largely unchanged though building works on the Palace of Westminster are still ongoing. I cannot imagine what it must have been like to have been in London on this day just over a hundred years ago
