Unveiling the Cenotaph SAM01 / 02 / 0074 - A Timeless Tribute to Sacrifice and Remembrance

EDITORS COMMENTS
. This print captures a poignant moment in history - the unveiling ceremony of the iconic Cenotaph on Whitehall, Westminster, Greater London. Steeped in solemnity and significance, this memorial stands as a timeless tribute to those who made the ultimate sacrifice during World War I. On that historic Armistice Day, 11 November 1920, King George V himself took center stage in this photograph. Standing to the right of the Cenotaph, his presence exudes both reverence and pride as he presses the button that releases two Union Jack flags from their perch atop this magnificent monument. The fallen flags now rest gently at its base - symbols of honor for those who gave their lives for king and country. Designed by renowned architect Sir Edward Lutyens between 1919-20, this masterpiece embodies strength and resilience while evoking deep emotions within all who behold it. Its grandeur serves as a reminder of our collective duty to remember and honor those brave souls who fought valiantly during one of humanity's darkest chapters. As part of Julian Joseph Samuels' esteemed collection, this print not only preserves an important historical moment but also invites us to reflect upon our shared past. It reminds us that war is not merely about statistics or battles won or lost; it is about real people with families and dreams whose lives were
