Lot 132: Outstanding collection of four original oversized glossy press photos, measuring approximately 12.5 x 9 and 8.5 x 10.5, each showing a different aspect of Kennedy's inauguration as president on January 20, 1961, including: Kennedy receiving the oath of office from Chief Justice Earl Warren, with Lyndon B. Johnson appearing behind JFK; outgoing President Eisenhower meeting with John and Jacqueline at their motor car outside the White House; cadets from the Missouri Military Academy marching in view of the Capitol during the inaugural parade; and the slow-moving traffic on Pennsylvania Avenue the night before the inauguration due to the surprise snowstorm that nearly forced the inaugural activities to be canceled. Newspaper clippings and captions of the images as published are affixed to the reverse of all four photos, each stamp-dated January 20 or 21, 1961. Overall creases, a few small edge tears, and a chip to the surface at Judge Warren's chin, as well as normal news use and wear, including production marks and notes, otherwise overall fine condition.
