The posing President

Posing with groups of visitors to the White House was something president Coolidge did often and well. Browsing the Library of Congress online photo archives the other day, I came upon a number of pictures that were new to me and that serve to illustrate the variety of such visitors. All of the images are from the period of May/June 1926.

    • I believe you may be right, unfortunately the Library of Congress has no info on that. Did the DAR routinely brandish swords?
