George Harris and Martha Ewing's firm was the pre-eminent photography studio for U.S. presidents from Theodore Roosevelt up through Franklin Roosevelt. Harris & Ewing opened its doors in 1905 and documented life in and around Washington, D.C., until it closed up shop in 1977. Government officials, military figures, performers and everyday folks all received the presidential treatment from this distinguished distributor. Here, all the hallmarks of Harris & Ewing's elegant portrait style are present, right down to the embossed copyright imprint. There is some minor emulsion wear on the peripheral image area and mounting wear to the margins, not impacting Silent Cal's inscription and signature, which rate "7-8" strength overall. Dimensions are 7-3/8" x 11". Auction LOA from JSA.
