Teddy Roosevelt on the stump | Sheaff : ephemera

Teddy Roosevelt on the stump


This is politics at its most basic: a candidate standing on a soapbox / stump / table making his points to a local crowd.
I once heard Alexander Nesbitt say that "a man is not a man unless he can stand up in his stocking feet in front of a crowd and tell them what he believes". 
Mailed from Freeport, Illinois in September 1910
