“ . . . whose support has meant so much to me and to The President over the years.”

George Herbert Walker Bush, 1924.  41st President of the United States, 1989-1993.  Excellent association inscribed 8” x 10” color photograph signed George Bush 41. 

This photograph evokes a wonderful association between father and son—who also happen to be the 41st and 43rd Presidents of the United States.  George H. W. Bush, the nation’s 41st President, has boldly inscribed and signed it “To/ my friend Katie whose support has meant so much to me and to The President over the years.”  He has noted that it was signed at “Kennebunkport.” 

Bush’s emphatic reference to The President” is obviously to his son, President George W. Bush, of whom he is very proud.  In My Father, My President, his daughter Doro quotes his reaction when Texas House Speaker Pete Laney first introduced George W. Bush as the president-elect:  “It didn’t sink in for us until he walked in and was introduced by Pete Laney,” the elder Bush said.  “I think that was really the most emotional moment for your mom and me—the realization that our son was the forty-third president.  I’ll never forget it.  We were alone—tucked into our bed in Houston, Texas.  We watched, and we sobbed.”

This is a beautiful photograph of Bush, in a military bomber jacket emblazoned with the presidential eagle, on the beach at Kennebunkport, Maine.  It is one of the nicest photos of him that we have seen.  The photo below does not do it justice.  It is a nice, bright photo.

The photograph is matted in light blue and framed in a simple black wood frame to an overall size of 11¾” x 13”.  The matting does not appear to be archival, but we do not know about the glass or the other materials that the framer used.  As far as it appears, although we have not examined it out of the frame, the photograph is extra fine.

Framed.
