ABOUT THIS PHOTOGRAPH

Taken November 1936, New York, United States
(Library of Congress)

"The poster seen in the background on the window was painted by Jacob H. Perskie, a noted photographer and painter who captured Franklin D. Roosevelt's in both 1932 and the 1936 campaign. FDR later referred to the artist as a 'faithful friend' following Perskie's passing in 1941. Perskie's son, Leon, continued in his father's footsteps and captured the president's 1944 campaign portrait. Perskie Senior's 1936 portrait was rendered into the A GALLANT LEADER poster printed by the Sweeney Litho Co. during the 1936 campaign. The address, 38th Street and 7th Avenue, is located in Manhattan's Garment District, once one of the world's epicentre's of fabric suppliers and producers."
