    Franklin D. Roosevelt Collection of Presidential Press Photos featuring over ninety black-and-white photos of the president in various situations: delivering live and radio speeches, attending official events, sailing, and during candid moments. These varied presidential photos evoke an era of presidential strength and ebullience. Most are 9" x 7" with "Acme Newspicture" backstamps and photo captions. Some photos also include the newspaper version stamped with "Evening News" and date. Also included is an original envelope (9.5" x 7.5") postmarked July 8, 1947, from Acme Newspictures in Chicago and addressed to the "Picture Editor" of the "Daily News & Evening News" in Los Angeles. This trove of fascinating photographs has been well cared for and comes in two binders.
