Vintage Autographed Photo to WWI General
Absolutely stunning, beautiful 7' x 10 1/4" Harris and Ewing signed photograph of Theodore Roosevelt dated January 19, 1911, and inscribed "To Captain Johnson Hagood, with its best wishes of Theodore Roosevelt, Jan 19th 1911". Hagood would later command a brigade in WWI and rise ot the rank of Majoe General.
Photo is a large 7x10 1/4", not the typical 4x6" photos usually found from Roosevelt. The image is sharp and crisp. It is on matt (lightly and could easily be removed) with Hagood's signature on the back. One of the nicest we've ever seen!
Conway's stamp on the digital image is of course NOT on the original photo.
Guaranteed Authentic for Life
