Lot 30: John F. Kennedy and John Glenn Photograph
8th November 2017
Original vintage circa 1962 glossy 13.5 x 10.25 silver gelatin photo of President John F. Kennedy, Vice President Lyndon B. Johnson, and John Glenn outdoors in the rain, taken by Ollie Atkins of the Saturday Evening Post. Reverse bears Ollie Atkins/Saturday Evening Post credit stamps. In fine condition, with some creasing to the top and bottom. Kennedy famously helped launch the 'space race' when he called for America to put a man on the moon by the end of the decade, and Glenn made enormous strides toward that goal when he became the first American to orbit Earth in February 1962. A fabulous image capturing three great Americans at a singular moment in time.
