A RARE CHILDHOOD PHOTO OF WINSTON CHURCHILL, AGED 5 OR 6, with his mother's sister, Leonie Blanche Jerome Leslie (1859-1943), taken during a visit to Ireland where Leonie lived with her husband, Sir John Leslie, an officer in the Grenadier Guards and Royal Irish Fusiliers. The family had extensive holdings in Ireland, comprising some 70,000 acres across six counties. Leonie was an adoring Aunt, and young Winston one of her favorites, in contrast to the somewhat distant relationship with his mother Jennie.
