Teddy Roosevelt Walks With His Wife and Son in Chevy Chase, D.C.

This fascinating photo shows President Teddy Roosevelt as a regular person, going for a walk in Chevy Chase with his son (Archie or Quentin) and his wife Edith some time in 1904. Doing a little digging, it’s probably Quentin, because his outfit looks exactly the same as what he was wearing in this photo.

There’s something very peaceful about this photo when you look at it. Make sure you click on the image below to see it in greater detail.

Or, if you’re too lazy to click the image, here’s a close-up of the three walking together.

If you’re interested in some great stories about Roosevelt, check out the story at Ghosts of DC about how he was always carrying a gun. Or, the one about him berating a child for taking his photo. There are quite a few Teddy stories there, so check them all out.
