President Franklin Roosevelt shaking hands with Colonel Albanus Phillips on Sequoia. Historical note: FDR is shown standing on the deck of the yacht Sequoia, an unusual photo of him seeming to stand. 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.
