President Roosevelt



Today we feature a picture of Roosevelt looking presidential. The picture was taken during the last part of his presidency.  I like the globe in the picture, reflecting the fact he was a world traveler and explorer.

  3. I used to love those big globes when I was a kid. Seems like we don't see them that often anymore.

  4. Great picture! Even at the end of his presidency, he was a boyish figure. The globe really sets it off. I've always loved maps, and globes are the ultimate map, because they don't flatten things out and distort the shape of some part of the earth. I had one, until I moved into a studio apt. Something had to go, and the globe, reluctantly, was one of them.

  5. I am amazed at the facial similarity between Teddy and the late Robin Williams. They certainly picked the right person for that movie role.
