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.
