President Franklin Roosevelt boarded the presidential yacht Sequoia to attend Emerson C. Harrington Bridge Dedication Ceremony (Oct. 28, 1935) The one close to the sailing pillar is President Roosevelt. Historical note: This is an unusual photo of FDR standing. Only his hand holding a post reveals a fact hidden then but now well known, that because of his polio he could not stand unsupported.
