THE ROOSEVELT FAMILY

TR's first wife, Alice, died in 1884 following the birth of their daughter. Two years later, TR would marry Edith Kermit Carow, and together they would have four sons and a daughter. The American public loved the Roosevelt family, and news of their escapades was always popular.

This rare item was an advertising poster for an edition of Ladies Home Journal that contained pictures of the children. Most of these posters were simply torn down and thrown away once the issue date had passed, but this one has somehow survived.
