Poster promoting Franklin Roosevelt for president, 1936. S. Yates, Brooklyn. Printed on heavy cardstock.
Portrait of Roosevelt is created with composed type. Text is a flattering biography of the president; his eyebrow reads: His hobby is philately. He is regarded as America's ace collector.; his tie: Roosevelt is the first nominee personally to appear before the convention that nominated him. Roosevelt's famous initials double as the first letters of the slogan, "Fairly Deserves Reelection." Copyright notice in lower margin reads, "Copyright 1936 by S. Yates, Brooklyn, New York." Verso, a 2-cent postage stamp, with 1/20/37 Kennedy, Alabama postmark.
One of the most unusual campaign posters we have seen, sure to elicit comment whenever displayed. This postmark was the date of Roosevelt second inauguration.
