I wasn’t going to do another Little White House post. But two commenters mentioned the 69 year old toilet paper roll — and I must admit, it made an impression on me, too. So here it is. 😀
That also gives me an excuse to devote a post to the areas I didn’t cover yesterday — the servants’ quarters and the guesthouse, which were my favorites. Probably because they remind me a bit of doll houses.
I’m also including a picture of the life size portrait Roosevelt was sitting for
when he had a massive stroke and died later that day. The portrait was never finished. The artist, however, later copied the unfinished portrait, changed the tie from red to blue, and so finished the portrait she had promised him.
One final photo — of Graham Jackson, naval musician with tears streaming down his face as he played “Going Home” as Roosevelt’s body passed before the patients at Georgia Hall for a final goodbye on April 13, 1945.
