Fala – FDR’s beloved

Here, are few photos from the visit to the Franklin Delano Roosevelt Memorial. I took quite a few photos but after reading some additional information – I decided to post just a few of them. First one is the photo of FDR’s beloved dog Fala, a cute Scottish Terrier. If you look at many historical photos taken during the FDR’s tree terms as our President, you will notice Fala on many of them.

FDR in Wheelchair Statue

The sculpture depicting FDR in the wheelchair is something that Americans did not see when FDR was alive. We wanted to see our leader as a strong man and not as reagular human beeing. Furthermore, the press had unwritten rule not to publish the photos of the President in the wheel chair. That was a soft media – today this agreemetn will not work.
