Although Fala might be the most famous of the Roosevelts’ dogs, this is a different Scottish terrier from decades before Fala joined the family. This photograph was taken in 1907. The dog, Duffy, is competing with Anna Roosevelt for a treat from the hand of FDR (who is standing over them, not yet stricken by polio).
Garry Moore, narrator of The Right Man (a show about past American presidential campaigns which aired prior to the 1960 election), wearing “headgear suggesting the days of Abe Lincoln (stovepipe), Grover Cleveland (soft beaver), Teddy Roosevelt (Rough Rider model) and something that looks as if it might be a brown derby.”
Dug this t-shirt, circa 1986 and commemorating President Reagan’s U.S. naval fighter action against Muammar Gaddafi, out and put it up on eBay because now it is a true collector’s item. Marking a specific event, it is perhaps even more ephemeral than paper works as these tees were worn and washed until they wore out!
Along with the phrase, “Good Morning Mr. Khadafy… This is your wake-up call,” there’s an F/A-18 (which looks like it’s straight out of Jane’s). I don’t suppose even the mighty US military can wake Muammar up now.
Another political novelty print… This time I guess the democrats lost their shirts in the election as this vintage novelty political print fashion item is only a skirt.
Be the belle of the republican ball with this full-skirted 1950s novelty print dress featuring red and blue GOP elephants. The dress has a matching print belt and scarf too.
