    Description

    Roosevelt & Lehman: Jugate American Labor Party Poster. "For Better Living" was the slogan that greeted voters when they saw this impressive poster in New York State. It is huge both in size and stature as one of the great FDR posters. It measures 28"x 37". Unfortunately, this poster has a few problems, all of which could be handled by professional restoration if the winner so desired.
    A.It has been dry mounted to a piece of light cardboard.
    B.Water staining at bottom as seen.
    C.Right below the "R" of Roosevelt there is a 2¼" tear at the edge.
    D.All four corners are bent / creased with some flaking of the original paper poster.
    E.To the left of FDR's head is a 2mm x 16mm hole
    F.At the bottom between the "E" and "R" of American is a dime-sized hole.
    All of these flaws are mentioned for total accuracy and many of them would be hidden from view with a good framing job. Keep this in mind because it could be years before you see another offering. From the Loewenstern Collection.
