Description

    Calvin Coolidge and Family, Five Photographs, including: three real photo postcards, 5.5" x 3.5", of Coolidge at his family farm in Plymouth, Vermont (holding his cat "Tim", on horseback, and sharpening his scythe); a photograph, 5" x 7", picturing President and Mrs. Coolidge arriving in New York, November 19, 1925, in which Coolidge is almost smiling; and a photograph, 9.25" x 7.5", of the Coolidge family: Calvin Jr., Mrs. Coolidge, the president, son John, and Colonel John Coolidge, the president's father. In this picture Coolidge seems to confirm Alice Roosevelt Longworth's observation that, "He looks as if he'd been weaned on a pickle." The postcards and large photograph are mounted on cards. All have photo archive stamps, pencil notations, and labels on the verso, the prints have surface abrasions and crazing, else near very good.
