A lot depends on the historic significance. For instance, a photo of him at Ford's Theater on the night of his assassination would be worth a premium while one taken before he was anyone of prominence would be valued much less - not "nothing", but less because there's no well-known event to tie him to.
A signed photo would be worth quite a bit regardless of what it depicted since the signature would be where the main value is.
To reply to another comment made, yes, he was a white supremacist. But then Churchill not only discriminated against Germans (he was obsessed with wiping the entire German culture off the map) he was a racist but a fraud, liar, plagiarizer, womanizer, homosexual, and a drunkard.
There seems to be a cognitive dissonance pandemic in Britain.
