Shirley Temple | White House
Child actress Shirley Temple leaving the White House after visiting with President Roosevelt.
Here's what the caption (from the time) says: "Shirley told the President about losing a tooth last night, and he told her about Sistie and Buzzie losing their teeth. Shirley expects to be in Washington aweek checking on the affairs of government with different government officials"
This was during the Depression and Shirley Temple was considered a morale booster. President Roosevelt was doing all he could to lift the spirits of the American people during this time.
I believe the woman reaching out to Shirley as she stands in the car door is her mother, Gertrude Amelia Temple (née Krieger).
