SIGNED PHOTOGRAPH OF FORMER PRESIDENT THEODORE ROOSEVELT AND HIS FRIEND AND FISHING BUDDY RUSSELL J. COLES ON A DEVIL FISH HARPOONING EXPEDITION OFF THE COAST OF FLORIDA, 16 MARCH 1917.

7-1/2" x 9-1/2." Roosevelt and Coles, nearly full length, standing together in their fishing outfits. "File Copy. Do Not Remove" embossed stamp. Verso with printed endorsement of Underwood & Underwood. Very Good.

The photograph, on file at the Library of Congress [without the autographs], depicts the two apparently satisfied fishermen. Each man has signed his name across his white-shirted chest. The Underwood firm, according to Wikipedia, was "a pioneer in the field of news bureau photography." The Company, founded in 1881, moved to New York City in 1887; in 1910 it entered the field of news photography, and remained active until the 1940s. Item #37314
