Churchill Watches Thoroughfare

Poster of Churchill

A poster of Churchill was hung on the wall

Shot in the city of Kandy, Sri Lanka.

I walked around the city center. Many shops were side by side. And many signboards were hung on the walls. The streets were busy. During ambling down the streets, I found an uncommon signboard on the wall of a shopping mall. However, it might be ordinary and was uncommon just for me.

A portrait of Winston Churchill was drawn on the signboard. He seemed to still watch the traffic in the former colony settlement. He was the Secretary of State for the Colonies in 1920s. And I wondered how the locals thought about him after the independence.
