Cool Picture – Teddy Roosevelt Watches Lincoln’s Funeral
The picture above was taken in New York City. It’s the funeral procession of Abraham Lincoln. If you don’t know what a big deal the procession was look it up. It went all over the east coast and it was a big deal. But the cool part of this is that Teddy Roosevelt is in the pic. He’s in that window in the upper lift. He was a little kid, practically a baby. What are the odds that in an age when there were only 11 cameras and it took 45 minutes to take a picture (these are facts, don’t look them up) that they would catch two presidents a literal lifetime apart.
It’s like the time I photo bombed Pope John Paul II. You know how hard it was to get in that coffin? The things I do for art.
