An excellent portrait of President Lyndon B. Johnson, hands clasped and looking focussed and thoughtful. A unique inscribed photograph thus, affectionately presented to then Prime Minister Harold Wilson.

Harold Wilson & Lyndon B. Johnson had initially enjoyed a positive relationship during Wilson's first tenure as Prime Minister but the Anglo-American 'special relationship' had been strained to quite some degree by Wilson's refusal to assist America in the Vietnam War. This was largely due to a political lack of will amongst the Labour Party and the British people but also born from the economic difficulties Britain was facing for having maintained a military presence East of Suez.
