Commander C.R.P. Rogers U.S.N. 1920

Photo Details

Of course, this being the U.S. in the 1920's, they are actually not chasing a fox, they are chasing paper. But among the "prominent" citizens picture are (in the foreground)future President Franklin D. Roosevelt (before he was paralyzed) and Mrs J.Borden Harriman
