Teddy Roosevelt’s White House menagerie is one of the most famous aspects of his personal life. Here he is, three years after leaving office and quite a bit of the menagerie remains, it seems. TR rides and fusses over his horse and then visits with his pack of dogs. Aww! Oh, and that’s his son later in the film.
Most public figures were pretty stiff in front of the camera at this time in history but TR seems to be quite at home. Enjoy this rare look at a fascinating historical figure!
