Sale Price $450.00
JAN C. SMUTS. Photograph signed: "J C Smuts/FM" and by an Indian diplomat. B/w, 5½x6. Smuts is depicted filling wine glasses as an unidentified Indian diplomat looks on. Caption on verso, in French, indicates that this photograph was taken on August 24, 1946 at the Paris Peace Conference. The conference was held from July 29 to October 15, 1946. At the conference, South Africa and India were elected chairmen of the Political and Economic Commissions, so it is possible the two leaders are celebrating their election. Jan Christiaan Smuts (1870-1950) was Prime Minister of South Africa from 1919-1924 and 1939-1948. The 1946 Paris Peace Conference resulted in 1947 peace treaties between the victorious WWII allies (principally the U.S., UK, France and USSR) and their lesser WWII enemies: Italy, Romania, Hungary, Bulgaria and Finland. Slightly creased. Fine condition.
