In turn, the British Prime Minister presented the US president with a photo of a mural painted in Edinburgh in honor of the American fighter for black rights Frederick Douglass, the PA news agency reported.
US President Joe Biden, who flew to Carbis Bay to attend the Group of Seven (G7) summit, presented him with an American-made bicycle and helmet at a meeting with British Prime Minister Boris Johnson. This was reported on Thursday by the PA news agency.
In turn, Johnson, who often rides a bicycle, handed Biden a photo of a mural painted in Edinburgh in honor of the American black rights activist Frederick Douglass (1817-1895). This work of monumental painting was made by the artist Ross Blair, and the picture itself was taken by the American-British photographer Melissa Highton. It is noted that Douglas visited Great Britain in the 1840s.
As the agency pointed out, the wife of the head of the White House, Jill Biden, who accompanied the American leader on the trip, received as a gift the first edition of the collection of short stories “The Apple Tree” by the English writer Daphne du Maurier (1907-1989). In turn, Carrie Johnson, whose wedding to the British prime minister took place on May 29, became the owner of a leather tote bag made by the wives of US military personnel, and a presidential silk scarf.
