Piece in our thyme

The source of this image is unknown. It is a picture of former British Prime Minister, Neville Chamberlain (1869-1940), whose entire career was overshadowed by his ill-fated September 1938 peace agreement with Nazi Germany. A year later, Germany invaded Poland, and Britain declared war on Germany. The Second World War broke out. The agreement turned out to be not worth the paper it was written on, not entirely unlike this picture caption.
