Lot 30: Franklin D. Roosevelt Signed Photo
5th March 2019
Unusual vintage matte-finish 6.75 x 9.25 photo of Roosevelt wearing a kingly makeshift robe and crown and holding fireplace tongs, signed and inscribed in fountain pen, "For my friend who has come back to us, Lewis B. Sebring, Jr., from Franklin D. Roosevelt, March 20, 1930.” Matted and framed to an overall size of 12 x 15, with the recipient noting that he received the photo in Albany in 1930 and that the costume was worn by Roosevelt at "the Legislation Correspondents Dinner that year." In fine condition, with some unobtrusive crazing to the emulsion. Lewis B. Sebring, Jr., was a journalist and war correspondent for the New York Herald-Tribune, who reported on combat in the Southwest Pacific theater during World War II.
