    A fabulous and large 11 x 14" black and white photograph of the Roosevelts and the Wallaces riding together in the Presidential limousine on the grounds of The White House in 1941. FDR and Vice President Henry A. Wallace are seated in the back seat of the open convertible Presidential limousine, while Eleanor Roosevelt and Ilo Wallace, wife of Henry A. Wallace. All four members of the First and Second Families are smiling brightly in this unique photograph. FDR signs his name boldly right above the depiction of himself and Wallace in the photograph: "For Frank/ from/ Franklin D. Roosevelt." What an interesting and rare large signed photograph of four smiling people from 1941 who just happen to be the President and Vice President of the United States and their wives.
